Key electronic resources
The key electronic resources for Hispanic studies provides access to secondary critical literature, such as journal articles, books, book chapters and dissertations, as well as to electronic primary sources and reference materials. Particularly recommended are the MLA International Bibliography (secondary sources), Chicano (secondary literature on Mexican Americans/Chicanos and the broader Latino experience), JStor and Project Muse (large collections of full-text journals).
