Find books and ebooks

WorldCat is the library's catalog, the main search bar at the top of this guide. Use it to find books, ebooks, and more! 

You can make "Get it" requests for books and articles that aren't available through our library (except for required course texts).

"Hispanic" and "Latino" are frequently used in literature describing native Spanish-speaking populations in the United States. "Latinx" is a more recent term, and you will find some materials under this heading. Here are examples of other Library of Congress subject headings:

  • Hispanic Americans
  • Cuban Americans
  • Dominican Americans
  • Mexican Americans
  • Puerto Ricans

These subject headings generally refer to U.S. citizens descended from particular regions or countries.

 

Practice:

Search WorldCat for:  In Search of Belonging Latinas 

Note the Subjects (Library of Congress), and click on a subject of your choice.  What sorts of results are you getting? We'll talk about how subject headings can be helpful.
