Finding Articles and Journals - Databases and Indexes

A number of practice oriented journals as well as academic law reviews offer coverage of indigenous peoples issues. Some of these journals are available in print at the University of South Dakota Law Library, and some are also available in subscription databases, including HeinOnline, Westlaw, and LexisNexis.
Searches for journal articles can be accomplished via indexing tools such as the Index to Legal Periodicals.
Many of the articles indexed or found in full text in the tools discussed above will be primarily from publishers in the United States, Canada, England and Australia.  Because the topic you are researching involves additional foreign and international topics, use of the the print subject index, the Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals, may be necessary to locate additional article citations.  The Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals is not currently available from the USD University or McKusick Law Library.

Primary International Materials

1. UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (A/RES/61/295) - Adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2007. Additional information about the Declaration is available from the Office of the High Commissioner of Human Rights.

Rather than travaux preparatoires, the preparatory materials for the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous peoples are the working papers and materials of the Working Group on the Draft Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. These preparatory materials may be located via the webpage for the Working Group provided by Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.
