A note on research databases
Below is a non-exhaustive list of research databases available via the library. By searching these databases, you can find relevant literature on your topic. The premier literary database is MLA International Bibliography, which is listed first. Note that not all of the databases listed are exclusive to literature. When attempting to conduct a complete review of all the relevant literature on a topic, it is typically a good idea to search many different databases.
Hispanic Literature Books
Databases with green or partially green icons offer some level of free, full-text articles. In most cases, you must be affliated with ASU to view the article or on the ASU campus. Some database offer a "pay-per-view" service where you can buy an article not available for free and have immediate access. If you do not need immediate access to the article, you may also request it through Interlibrary Loan for free. Articles requested through Interlibrary Loan can take 2-5 business days to come in, depending on the lending library.
