Getting Started


Welcome to the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center (CSRC) Library's Research Guide!

This guide is here to help students navigate all the services the CSRC Library has to offer. The library is both library and archive. We holds thousands of primary and secondary source materials on and offsite. The library's secondary sources—books—are located in the library stacks, which are open to browse but not check out (they do not circulate). The archives are stored offsite at the Southern Regional Library Facility (SRLF) and require advance notice to bring them onsite for research. Find out more information on how to use the library services under "Frequently Asked Questions." Below are links to relevant databases and online resources to help you get started. You can also find more information about collections, research topics, and course resources in the left-hand menu. We are continuously adding more information, but if you have further questions, please don't hesitate to contact the CSRC Library!
