SPN 470 Hispanic Presence in the U.S.: Find books and articles

Finding books and other items at UM

Use the Discovery search box as a portal for library material including books and articles on your topic (in English and Spanish).  You can use the facets to limit your search by source type, date, language, and even database.

Discovery Search Box

Finding articles in specific databases

In addition to searching in the Discovery search box, you may wish to look in some specific databases, depending on your topic.  Here are some databases that may be useful to you.

Find other potentially useful databases, depending on your topic, in the UM Databases list.

Finding books beyond the UM library

It's a big world out there, and we're a small university.  Perhaps the easiest way to search for books beyond UM is to use the WorldCat database. 

Use Interlibrary Loan

Since no library can carry everything, Interlibrary Loan allows you access to materials held throughout the state, country, and world - for FREE!  You should see an Interlibrary Loan option in our Discovery or WorldCat systems when you pull up items our library does not have.  To set up an account or manually fill out a request, visit our Interlibrary Loan page.
