Latin American Studies

Reference Sources

Reference sources are fantastic places to begin your research, especially if you are exploring a new topic, or a subject area that you know very little about. Reference sources can help you to:

  • define your topic in general terms
  • find background information, including themes and key points
  • identify keywords and alternative terms for conceptualizing your subject, and for database searching.   

The titles which appear below are a selection of both print and online material. You can also use the tabs on the side to see Dictionaries, Handbooks and Encyclopaedias on Latin America. The online reference sources are all frequently updated, searchable, and contain substantial entries written by experts.
