Hot on the heels of our announcement of several new high-profile databases, Albertsons Library has acquired another key database, this one focusing on Hispanic issues.
The Chicano Database is offered via the FirstSearch interface and provides an extensive bibliographic record of "Mexican-American, Chicano and the broader Latino experience," addressing a variety of cultural, social, economic, political issues. It also includes the "Spanish Speaking Mental Health Database, covering psychological, sociological and educational literature."
Research dates back from the 1960's to the present, and content is updated every three months.
Combining the resources of the Hispanic American Periodicals Index (HAPI), Ethnic Newswatch (ENW), Informe, Fuente Académica, and now the Chicano Database, Boise State students and faculty now have access to a wealth of multidisciplinary research on Hispanic and Latin American scholarship.
Access the Chicano Database from the Albertsons library's A - Z list, or from the Articles, Databases link. Access to this database is limited to three simultaneous users.
