Database of the Week: Latinx Studies Resources

In celebration of Latinx Heritage Month, this week we are highlighting the library's Latinx Studies Resource guide. Within this guide you will find not only suggested books and journals, but reference resources on history, art, music, and culture to help you get started with your research. 

Each tab of this guide contains suggestions of resources from streaming video & audio to news and journal article databases as well as recommended websites. For example, if you search this guide, you will find links to the following collections ....
  • Artstor's Latin American Studies which highlights content related to the history and culture of Latin America, including images of works of art and architecture, from traditional forms to contemporary works, as well as photographs of historical events and figures.
  • Chicano Database whose coverage includes art, bilingual education, education, labor, literature, mental health, law, poetry, politics and sociology.
  • Hispanic American Newspapers which represents the single largest compilation of Spanish-language newspapers (dating from 1808 to 1980) containing Hispanic views on nearly every major theme in American life.

If you are off campus, in order to access the library's online resources, you will need to login with your Kenyon username/password and DUO.
