Research Tips

TIP: Each database uses different terminology to describe Latino/a communities.  You may need to use various descriptors to find the information you seek, for example:

  • Chicano/a
  • Chican@
  • Mexican American
  • Mexican nationals
  • Latino/a
  • Puerto Ricans
  • New Yorkicans
  • Afro-Latino
  • Salvadoran American

TIP:  Immigration issues are core to the study of Latino communities.  You may need to use various descriptors to find the information you seek, for example:

  • Undocumented
  • Illegal
  • Out-of-Status

TIP:  Use a citation manager such as RefWorks or Zotero  to build and share your research. For short research projects look for and use the built-in  citation generators in Ebsco, CSA, and Porquest databases.
