The Library Services for Saskatchewan Aboriginal Peoples (LSSAP) committee was established in 1991. The committee was organized for information sharing on issues relating to library services for Aboriginal peoples in Saskatchewan based on identified needs by library and information workers from band school libraries, public libraries, and post-secondary institutions. The Committee encourages people of Aboriginal descent, who have an interest in libraries or who work or volunteer in a band /school/ public library, to join the committee at any time.
Impetus came from needs identified by Saskatchewan Indian Cultural Centre in Saskatoon; First Nations University of Canada, Regina and Prince Albert Campuses; the Gabriel Dumont Institute, Regina and Prince Albert Campuses, the Pahkisimon Nuye?ah Library System, Prince Albert Grand Council; University of Saskatchewan; Saskatoon Public Library; Regina Public Library; and with support from the Provincial Library and the Saskatchewan Library Association.
Several members of the LSSAP Committee served on the Ministers' Advisory Committee on Library Services to Aboriginal People in 2001. The Advisory Committee's report, Information is for Everyone, was released in 2001.
