Probably the best way to approach searching for books in NUsearch is to start with a keyword search.
Your searches for books can be aided by using subject headings in addition to keywords. The main Library of Congress subject heading that refers to U.S. Latinos is Hispanic Americans. This heading will work for searching NUsearch, as well as the library catalog at the University of Chicago, WordCat and other catalog systems. For books on citizens of Latin American countries in the U.S. try using Latin Americans --United States.
Since the focus of your class is on Latinos in the Midwest, you might try geographic sub-headings to help find books about Latinos in the region such as:
The broader Hispanic Americans heading can be further subdivided by topical sub-headings such as:

You can request items from Chicago campus libraries be sent up to an Evanston campus library directly through NUsearch!
