Bienvenidos y bem-vindos! This guide will help researchers studying the literatures of the Spanish and Portuguese world at the UO Libraries. I am YOUR librarian y yo hablo español y portugués! Please contact me (my info is in the profile box in this guide) with any questions or suggestions!
Check out the "Research is a Process" graphic below to give you some guidance as you explore what UO Libraries has to offer!
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.
