Guide to Library Research in Chicano Studies.
Guerena, Salvador; Gonzales, Raquel Quiroz
Designed to acquaint persons conducting library research in Chicano Studies with the numerous reference materials found in the University Library at the University of California-Santa Barbara, the manual provides information on the Coleccion Tloque Nahuaque, relevant subject headings, and a useful search strategy. The Coleccion Tloque Nahuaque, which serves as a focal point for information services relating to the Chicano/Mexicano experience in the United States, is briefly discussed in terms of its resources, staff, reserve reading service, circulation policy, publications, computer search services, exhibits, tours, and hours of service. An overview of the following departmental resources is provided: resources in education, government documents, Department of Special Collections, Map and Imagery Laboratory, Arts Library, and Curriculum Laboratory. Sixty-nine subject headings and 26 Library of Congress call-numbers relevant to Chicano Studies are listed. The five steps considered necessary in forming a useful search strategy are briefly reviewed: finding an overview for the general subject, reviewing available bibliographies for the field, finding books for the topic, finding materials through indexes and abstracts, and locating useful directories. The manual concludes with a list of 99 selected reference materials identified as standard items for reference work on the Chicano and a key word and subject index. (NQA)
