This Guide is designed to point researchers to basic tools for doing research in Spanish language and literature taught in OU's Modern Languages Department. There is information on both print and online sources.
Many of the resources listed here are limited to use by members of Ohio University. If you are using the Guide off-campus, you will need to do a brief login to identify yourself as a member of Ohio University before you can use these resources.
For additional resources—not strictly literary—see the Latin American Studies research guide.
Start with ArticlesPlus below ↓ and the Oxford Bibliography for Latin American Studies (if it's appropriate to your topic), then go on to other pages in this Guide for additional sources.
