WHY ALL THE VERBIAGE IN THIS GUIDE?
WELL, RESEARCH IN CHICANA AND CHICANO STUDIES IS COMPLICATED BECAUSE IT IS MULTIDISCIPLINARY AND OFTEN CONTROVERSIAL.
CONSIDER TAKING A FEW MINUTES TO READ THIS ADVICE. IT WILL SAVE YOU HOURS OF FRUSTRATION IN THE LONG-TERM.
This guide is intended to give you an idea of the Chicana and Chicano Studies research resources available to you at the Cal State Fullerton's Pollak Library. The tabs and subtabs contained in this guide will lead you through the research process including help with compiling and citing those resources.
Follow the tabs across the top to:
Get Started with selecting a topic, determining possible search terms and developing search strategies to find resources.
Find Resources by exploring the types of resources available and where to look for those resources, including books, book chapters, journal, magazine and newspaper articles, AV materials, government reports, statisitics, and dissertations, etc.
Where's the Fulltext when it is not available where you are.
Cite Resouces will help you cite sources and create bibliographies, references lists or works cited page for your assignments.
Additional features, such as practice exercises, will be added as they are created.
