Chicano Studies: A Bibliography of Primary Reference Sources.
Stabler, Karen, Comp.
This document provides primary references (mostly in English) on Chicano topics and a basic strategy for researching topics related to Chicanos. The document suggests beginning with dictionaries and encyclopedias as starting points for research. Journals are the best source for current information on a topic. Several indexes list references to journal articles in the field of Chicano studies. CD-ROM databases offer an exciting new approach to the retrieval of citations of journal articles. These include INFOTRAC Academic Index, PsychLIT, ERIC, and ABI/INFORM. Books are not as current as journal articles but will provide more comprehensive coverage of a subject. Sources that may also be helpful include other bibliographies, biographies, directories, statistical references, atlases, genealogical sources, and government documents. In each entry, the bibliography provides the call number of the New Mexico State Univerity Library, the title, publisher, publication date, and a short description of the reference, where appropriate. The document also offers tips for using the various sources. (KS)
