The Mexican American in Library Materials.
This resource guide provides the librarian with a selected bibliography of available materials which help to dispel stereotyping and inaccuracy in Mexican American literature and social studies materials. According to the author, although bad minority literature and materials are abundant, good materials are being produced. Teachers and librarians need to become aware of the Mexican American materials which reflect the history, heritage, contributions, and pride of the Mexican American people. The first section deals with a statement of the current availability of good and bad resource materials on the Mexican American. The second section focuses on bibliographic listings of available materials for K-12 students, in both literature and social studies. A list of descriptors used in the ERIC system and subject headings of bibliographic indexing are also included. Section 3 discusses the cataloging problems related to Mexican American materials. An annotated list of 16mm films concludes the bibliographic sources. The last two sections give suggestions for bulletin board displays and arts and crafts. (Author/JR)
