Finding Films/Documentaries

The best way to locate films and documentaries owned by the Duke Libraries is by using the film search box.

Databases with Content in Spanish published in Latin America

Finding Research Reports Online

To find research reports from Latin American think tanks, use a Google search for words such as reporte or investigación combined with country names or regional names (e.g., Centroamérica or Cono Sur) and key terms such as:

  • "Medio Ambiente"
  • Biodiversidad
  • Agroecología
  • "Desarollo sostenible"
  • "Calentamiento global"

NOTE: Putting a term in quotation marks will produce results for that TERM rather than the individual words.

 

To find additional keywords consult online glossaries of environmental terms in Spanish. See:
