Spanish Language and Literature - Start Here

Introduction

La Sagrada Famailia in BarcelonaThis 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.

ArticlesPlus

ArticlesPlus is a single database which searches the contents of more than 200 databases all at the same time. Using this one searchbox above, you can find items from:

  • All EBSCOhost databases that we have
  • All JSTOR journals that we have
  • ISI Web of Knowledge
  • Several newspaper databases
  • Our ALICE Catalog (books, videos, names of magazines, journals, and newspapers, and more)
  • ...and much more

ArticlesPlus does not include everything. We have numerous additional databases--including about two dozen from ProQuest--that are not included in ArticlesPlus. To find and connect to these, consult the Databases feature in ALICE.
