Latin American Studies


When you get started on a research project, you're going to want to get a feel for what scholarly work has already happened around your topic.  I recommend Academic Search Premier, Google Scholar, OneSearch, Jstor and Muse for initial searches.  After these initial searches, you're going to want to try searching in some discipline specific databases

Literature and Cultural Studies:

Political Science & International Relations:


Social Sciences:
