Chicana and Chicano Resource Center
Pollak Library South 170A and 171
The Chicana and Chicano Resource Center provides support for the academic, research and cultural interests of students, faculty, staff and community. The center was originally established in 1972 as a specially funded project to develop the University’s collection on Mexico and the Southwest. Consequently the center is responsible for building a complete collection of materials related to the Chicano experience. Although the vast majority of materials, especially books and periodicals, are dispersed throughout Pollak Library and are made available for study and research through library-wide retrieval mechanisms, the center serves as a readily identifiable research center that provides a host of specialized services and collections.
The Chicana and Chicano Resource Center supports the collaboration and creation of scholarly works between faculty and students on issues such as history, culture, education, and other contemporary issues of Chicanos in the United States. Thus, the center provides support to the Department of Chicana and Chicano Studies and other related disciplines in developing specialized resources for study and research. The center further enhances existing University support services to ensure the recruitment and retention of Chicano/Latino students at the University, and supports and facilitates dialogue on the Chicano experience among students and across the University.
The center is a great place for students to locate resources on Latino themes and topics for all majors, locate scholarship and workshop/conference information, hold student organization meetings, and participate in networking opportunities.
