Chicanos: A Selective Guide to Materials in the UCSB Library.
Najera, Carlos, Comp.
Intended to assist students and faculty members in locating materials on the life and culture of Mexican Americans or Chicanos found in the Library at the University of California at Santa Barbara, this guide cites 772 books, curriculum development guides, and government publications, published between 1917 and 1970. The guide does not cite the entire library holdings on the subject, but reflects the range of collection as of the Fall of 1971. Arranged according to subject categories, beginning with bibliographies and continuing with special subjects, the guide consists of 15 sections: Bibliographies, Archaeology/Anthropology, Art/Architecture/Theatre, Economics and Labor, Education, Folklore and Mythology, History, Literature, Mexican Heritage, Migration, Political Science, Public Health, Sociology, Curriculum Collection Materials, and Government Publications. Entries are arranged by author or title within each section, with the exception of the sections on curriculum collection materials and government publications. Entries in these two sections are arranged by main entry. Entries cover such subjects as acculturation, agricultural laborers, bilingualism, migrant children, civil rights, intermarriage, land grants, mental hygiene, strikes and lockouts, and migration. Author and subject indices conclude the guide. (NQA)
