Welcome to the guide for Latino/a and Latin American Studies!

I hope that you will find this guide a useful starting place for your research. I have assembled a core collection of resources available through the Wayne State University Library System, as well as high quality, freely available web resources. This guide is a collaborative work-in-progress, developed with the suggestions and feedback from students and faculty in Latino/a and Latin American Studies.

I am available by appointment to assist students and faculty with research related to Latino/a and Latin American Studies. You may also contact me to schedule research workshops for classes or to suggest items for purchase.
