Welcome to the research session for your course PORT 5150 Survey of Brazilian Literature-Literatura e marginalidade. My name is Kathia Ibacache, and I am the Romance Languages Librarian and your point of contact for any help you might need in your research process. You will have to complete a research paper for the end of the semester based on a theme approved in your proposal and having in mind one of the authors in "Bibliografia Obrigatória". Therefore, this guide will provide information about research methodologies, resources available through databases and other materials at CU-Boulder, as well as open access (OA) resources available on the Internet. My goal is to help you gain familiarity with the sites and resources available to complete your research project for this class.
