Instructions on how to Use the KRC (Q&A)

The UIH- KRC is organized under six main components:

I. Urban Indian Knowledge Clearing House  

II. Field-related  & Community Services & information:

III. The Urban Indian Health Programs Information

IV. Best, Promising and Evidence-Based Practices

V.  News & Events

VI. Urban Indian Population Evolution

Access to the information and materials is granted at two levels: Public and Restricted. The general public will be able to access information about the existing materials; however will not be able to download all documents available. The rationale behind this restriction is twofold- on the one hand copyright issues constrain our ability to make full-text document versions available to all (only abstracts are permitted). On the other hand, there exist documents that only concern to our membership.

NCUIH Members will be able to see and download documents available (documents with permission granted by author/publishers) and NCUIH-related materials. Since the inception of the project, NCUIH has been requesting permissions to all incumbent documents rights holders; (this is a labor intensive ongoing project). If you are a Member of NCUIH and wish to gain access to the restricted area please contact our Communications Coordinator, Aleksandra Modrow. Among other features, we have included a glossary of Health-related, traditional, spiritual and western culture-based concepts to assist the user to have a better understanding of the documents. Should you have suggestions on concepts or definitions to include please contact our webmaster, Aleksandra Modrow. Next stages of development will incorporate deeper analyses and other specialized online features especially designed for Urban Indian Health Programs registered as NCUIH Members.
