The goal of this guide is to help you research Latinos, Latinas, and Latinx in the United States.

Please email, IM, or come see me if you have any questions.  My office is Belk Library 208, located on the 2nd floor of Belk Library.  The easiest way to get there is to take the elevator to the 2nd floor and turn right, and it's the last door on the left.

What is Latinx?

"Latinx" is a new term that is used as a gender-neutral alternative to Latino and Latina.  Its use is not without controversy, however.
