Latin American Studies

Bienvenidxs, Bem-Vindos, and Welcome to the LAS Research Guide

Black outline of Central and South America (Including Mexico in North America)

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: UO lock icon. 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 a Process (Infographic)

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 guide navigation to learn about each of the steps of the process, and don't be afraid to jump around between steps.
