This guide will give you an overview and orientation to the resources at UO in support of LAS research. It also contains links and suggestions for free and open access resources. Approximately 72% of scholarly research in Latin America is published through an open access model.1
Subscription resources have a UO lock icon next ot them: . I've indicated OA databases with the open lock icon when at least some full text or streaming content is freely available.
Use the side tabs to navigate through a research process, and please reach out to your instructor or librarian if you get stuck.

Research is an iterative process, meaning it's repetitive but you learn as you move forward and make changes. It's more cyclical than straightforward or linear. Use the side navigation to learn about each of the steps of the process, and don't be afraid to jump around between steps.

Links on library webpages (including in LibrarySearch, Browzine, and Databases A-Z) run through a proxy server which verifies you are a UO member, and are eligible to access library materials. When you click on a proxied link for the first time in the session, you are prompted to enter your DuckID and password to access the resource.
For certain library resources, using the UO's VPN service will be necessary. VPN is not necessary for Canvas or LibrarySearch access.
If the proxied links or bookmarklet aren't working for you, the VPN lets you join the UO's network from off-campus. Using the VPN slows your internet speed, so only connect when you need to access resources, and disconnect once you're done.
