Latino Myth-Busting Social Media Project - GOVT 396

Resources for identifying myths and misconceptions about the Latino community in the United States

Exploring the (virtual) library stacks

Library catalog tip: Though many authors use Latino, Latina or Latinx, many records have "Hispanic American" as part of the subject heading. Try doing an advanced search and adjust the drop-down menus so that the search reads "Subject contains "Hispanic American." Use the next line of the search to add concepts like "myth" or "stereotype." Add additional lines to build in more specific areas of interest. These could include film, media, arts, men, women, teens, youth, politics, or civic engagement.
