Chicano Studies Research Center Library

Serving the UCLA and Chicano community since 1969


The CSRC collects materials related to the Chicana/o and U.S. Latino experience across California, the Southwest, and the United States. Our mission is to preserve and provide access to these materials for research and teaching, not only to UCLA and UC-affiliated users but to everyone and anyone wanting to learn more about the U.S. Latino population.
