Latino Literature and Culture: Welcome!


Latino Studies involves the study of Latin American, including Caribbean, communities in the United States. It's a multidisciplinary field, requiring you, the researcher, to be very savvy and aware of research techniques for various disciplines. Throughout this guide, I'll provide tips and tricks and I'll also refer you to some of the other subject librarians at University Libraries who have different types of expertise. 

For example, Latinx peoples make up 16.3% of the U.S. population according to the information gathered in the 2010 census. If you're interested in using census data or gathering other demographic statistics, you may enjoy working with Kate Tallman or Allan Van Hoye, our Government Information Librarians, or Philip White, our Geography Subject Librarian.
