The UWW libraries subscribes to many databases that can be used to locate scholarly peer reviewed journal articles, as well as book chapters, dissertations and more. Below are a couple resources that will likely find you the most literary criticism on your topic, so start with them.
If you want to find more criticism, use some of the other resources on the Literatures and Languages databases list. Select databases to start with are also included below.
Do not pay for articles! If the UWW libraries do not have them, use Illiad to interlibrary loan them for free from another library. More details are on the Borrow tab of this guide.
Here are a few more databases that contain scholarly articles on Latin American literature.
Another resource you can use to find scholarly sources is Google Scholar. It is searched the same way as regular Google, but you will find better quality materials when using Google Scholar. It primarily finds scholarly journal articles, but also finds books, book chapters, dissertations, and other sources published by academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities, etc. You won't find everything that's out there or even everything that the UW-Whitewater libraries have, but it can be a useful tool.
On the UW-Whitewater campuses, Google Scholar is set up to automatically interact with Find It, a tool that will find you the full text of articles and books we have or offer you a way to borrow them for free if we do not. However, Find It does not show up for every citation that appears in Google Scholar. If no Find It link appears, try the Journal Search to see whether and where we have a particular journal, magazine or newspaper and what dates are available.
To set up the Find It/Google Scholar interactivity on your personal desktop computer, laptop, tablet, etc. follow these instructions:
Have you found the citation for an article you want in another article's bibliography or on Google Scholar? You can use the libraries' Journals Search to see whether and where the Whitewater libraries has the periodical (journal, magazine, or newspaper) that the article came from. Start by typing the periodical title (not the article title) in the box below. This is also available from the libraries' homepage.
