Try exploring the Holy Cross library catalog for books related to your topic. If Holy Cross does not have a book you need, you can use WorldCat to search for books from other libraries and then request these books through Interlibrary Loan.
Search tip: Search for books by either Keywords or Subject Headings. Start with a Keyword search and identify some relevant books. Then look at the subject headings for those books. You can follow the subject heading links in the catalog to find similar books, or you can use the terms in the subject headings to identify other keywords to try.
You might come across subject headings indicating that a book is a secondary source providing literary criticism. For example:
Latin American literature -- History and criticism.
Spanish American literature -- History and criticism.
Some subject headings might be more focused, looking at literature from a particular time period or literature from a particular country. For example:
Spanish American poetry -- To 1800 -- History and criticism.
Argentine literature -- History and criticism.
Mexican literature -- History and criticism.
Search tip: If you'd like to look for books written in Spanish, you can do this in both the library catalog and in WorldCat. In the library catalog, you can use the language option to the left of your search results. In WorldCat, you can use the language drop-down menu on the search form.
