Using this Research Guide

This guide is designed to introduce you to University Archives resources on Duke's Latinx history. The resources and information here aren't exhaustive, but they are hopefully the key things you need to know in researching for this exhibit.

The information in this guide is separated into four sections:

  • Secondary Sources: Research papers, publications, and more about Duke's Latinx history. The resources here are specific to Duke (rather than, say, a general scholarly work about Latinx students in US higher education).
  • Archival Collections: A selection of archival collections that are likely to be central to your research. This list isn't a substitute for a thorough catalog and collection guide database search, but these collections will probably become familiar territory.
  • Duke Publications: Key publications produced for Duke students, faculty, staff, and alumni, which provide excellent contemporaneous accounts of campus events and dialogues.
  • People, Student Groups, and Campus Offices to Know! As you research, you'll encounter the names of lots of people, groups, offices, projects, committees . . . and on and on. Here, you'll find tips on how to figure out who or what they are and do.
