Latina/o Library Resources: Finding Books

A guide for studying Latinos/as at the UIUC Library

Tips on finding books

An excellent first step to finding books for Latino Studies is to search the Library Catalog using a Subject Search and search terms such as:

  • Hispanic Americans
  • Hispanic Americans and mass media
  • Hispanic Americans--Biography

and try combining terms such as:

Hispanic American Women  - Health; Hispanic American youth; Hispanic American studies; Hispanic Americans-study and teaching; Hispanic Americans-history; Hispanic Americans - political activity



Look for ways to limit your search on the right of the results page (such as by format,  topic, language, era).  To see the most recent books you can change the Sort Results box by changing it from relevance to newest first.
