Background resources to help you explore Ancient Mexican Cultures
There are a number of steps you can take to make it easier to find information about Ancient Mexican Cultures.
Some of these resources are online and some are only available in print.
DO NOT IGNORE THE PRINT ONLY ITEMS. THEY MAY BE THE MOST IMPORTANT SOURCES YOU FIND!!!
Here are some examples of print only resources:
Handbook of Middle American Indians, 1964-76, 16 vols., plus supplements, F1434.H3, 5th floor S. Supplements are newer and have unique call numbers. There is online access to some volumes and supplements.
Bernandino de Sahagun, General History of the Things of New Spain: Florentine Codex, 1950-1982, 12 Books in 13 pts. (vols.), F1219.S13. (Several volumes are currently missing. I am trying to acquire this online.) We also have several other versions of this in Spanish.
Use these databases to find records and, in some cases, full text for journal articles, books, and book chapters on the Ancient Cultures of Mesoamerica
