WHY ALL THE VERBAGE IN THIS GUIDE? WELL, RESEARCH IN CHICANA AND CHICANO STUDIES IS COMPLICATED BECAUSE IT IS MULTIDISCIPLINARY AND OFTEN CONTROVERSIAL.
CONSIDER TAKING A FEW MINUTES TO READ THIS ADVICE. IT WILL SAVE YOU HOURS OF FRUSTRATION IN THE LONG-TERM.
This guide is intended to give you an idea of the Chicana and Chicano Studies research resources available to you at the Cal State Fullerton Pollak Library. The tabs contained in this guide will lead you through the research process including help with compiling and citing those resources.
Follow the taps across the top to:
- Get Started with selecting a topic, determining possible search terms and developing search strategies to find resources.
