Latin Studies Research Guide
To search for books on Latino Studies, go to “Search Library Catalog” on the left side of the Library webpage. Use “Advanced Search” and put in your search terms (“Latino” and “Culture” or other relevant terms ). Be aware that you may have to use synonymous terms in order to retrieve better results. Also be aware that, instead of “Latino” you may want to use “Hispanic” or “Central American” or the particular country which you are researching.
