Guidebook to Hispanic Organizations and Information.
Meier, Ellen, Comp.; Lo Bosco, Maryellen, Comp.
This Guidebook details the work of Hispanic organizations involved with educational issues, cultural issues, and social service concerns. The directory was created as a resource guide for individuals and groups interested in the work of Hispanic groups or in exploring issues relevant to the Hispanic community. This first edition of the Guidebook does not list organizations primarily identified as Mexican American. Each listing explains the purpose of the organization and describes its area of specialization, service provision, constituency, and publications. The last section of the Guidebook gives (1) a brief explanation of the ERIC database and how to use it when searching for documents about Hispanics or Hispanic concerns; (2) a selected bibliography on materials about Hispanic Americans; (3) an index of organizations included in the Guidebook by scope of interest; and (4) an index of organizations by geographic location.
