Information designed to explore the broad dimensions of class, race and gender within the Chicano and Latino U.S. experience is now available through EBSCOhost® from EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO). Chicano Database™,a bibliographic index formerly available via First Search from OCLC, furthers research, teaching and scholarship for Chicano studies programs and broader ethnic studies curricula.
Produced by the Ethnic Studies Library at the University of California, Berkeley, Chicano Database covers a wide range of materials focused on the Mexican-American and Chicano experience as well as the broader Latino experience of Puerto Ricans, Cuban Americans and Central American immigrants since 1992.
Chicano Database content includes nearly 60,000 records from more than 2,400 journals and other resources including newspapers, books and book chapters. The database provides extensive depth with coverage dating back to the 1960s and selective indexing dating back to the early 1900s. Chicano Database also includes The Spanish Speaking Mental Health Database covering psychological, sociological and educational literature.
The expansive content in Chicano Database enables subject coverage to be wide-ranging in scope — including art, bilingual education, education, labor, literature, mental health, law, poetry, politics and sociology.
