About Resource Center
The Latino Intersections Resource Center, a part of the Latino Journal Intersections website, is affiliated with
the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, and the Latin American, Latino & Caribbean Studies Program at
Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire. It receives funding and support from the Dartmouth College Library System.
The Resource Center's mission is to create a gateway to resources that facilitate access to Internet-based information
to, from, or about the Latino community in the United States. The definition used here of "Latino community" is
largely cultural and does not describe a single monolithic group. On the contrary, for us, Latino means any person
living in the United States with a Hispanic heritage.
Our target audience includes anyone with an interest in Latino issues. Although the majority of
resources included here address the needs of the "academia" (students & professors, high schools & colleges,
private & public sector professionals, etc), the Resource Center also hopes to assist anyone looking for
information in this important field.
The Resource Center is divided into five main categories:
- Latino Directory is a comprehensive directory of Latino associations,
institutions and organizations with an Internet presence, which focus on academic, cultural,
and professional activities in the United States.
- Teaching Tools is a comprehensive gateway of resources that support
research and teaching in Latino issues. Databases, periodical indexes, class syllabi, bibliographies and
other reference tools, are listed under this category.
- Latino Media & Books is a comprehensive list of journals,
newspapers and books dealing with Latino issues.
- Politics & Latino Policy is a comprehensive list of specific sources that provides
information about politics and public policy to serve the Latino population in the United States.
- Professional Development provides information about Fellowships,
scholarships, grants, mentorships, interships, Volunteer work and other opportunities for personal
and professional development.
