In celebration of Latinx Heritage Month we’re proud to call attention to a few relevant subject sets of Gleeson databases. Use the drop-down menu “All Subjects” to scroll through all the various subject areas we have databases grouped into.
Although we’re highlighting just one database per subject area you’ll find a broad host of individual databases under each of these areas. Also, you may notice that several databases appear under all three subject areas due to overlapping coverage.
This wide-ranging database includes over 67,000 records from more than 2,400 journals and other resources including newspapers, books and book chapters. You’ll find an array of articles relating to diverse aspects of Chicano culture from politics to art, education and social issues. As there is not an abundance of full text directly available in Chicano Database you will want to familiarize yourself with our Full Text Finder.
