SPANISH_105-6 Women at the Border: The Marginalization of Latinas in the U.S.: Getting Started

About this Guide

This guide is designed to support your research assignments on both paper 2 and the final paper on a topic of your choice, related to immigration and the marginalization of Latinas in the United States. 

Getting started on your research? Not sure how to go about your assignments? This page features the contact information for two librarians trained in Spanish/Portuguese, Latina/o Studies, or Latin American Studies. You can make an appointment with either of us to get individual, hands-on training on how to search for sources related to possible topics of interest. 

The library also offers several online videos that demonstrate how to choose and use keywords to search for different kinds of sources in the library -- two of which are embedded below, but there are tutorials that cover all the research basics.
