This bibliography is intended as a thorough starting-point for researchers interested in the past and present of Latinos in Oregon. It compiles scholarly studies in a variety of disciplines, plus links to Oregon Latino publications, archives of primary source materials about the Latino experience in Oregon, and contact information for organizations serving the Latino community throughout the state. It is always growing and not exhaustive, but we hope it is useful. Many thanks to Leslie Cagle, iSchool student at the University of Washington, for her work initially compiling these resources, and to David Woken, former History and Latin American Studies Librarian at UO Libraries, who created this guide.
These works are organized broadly by genre or discipline. If you have a book, article, or other scholarly resource that you would like added to this bibliography, please contact the page's owner, Bronwen K. Maxson, via the contact information in the sidebar.
