This 382 reel collection is a rich primary source for scholars. It contains Chicano and Mexican-American periodicals, journals, and newspapers published throughout the United States during the years 1855 - 1990. The newspapers are as far east as New York, north to Detroit, south to Texas, and covers the entire West Coast. There are over 250 different newspapers published in both Spanish and English. The microfilm collection is divided into eleven sections. The sections are not chronological so it is imperative to use the guide.
Finding Aids: Chicano Studies Library Serial Collection (MICRO E184.M5 C457x Guide) lists titles, places and dates of publications. The guide is not chronological but each section lists the titles alphabetically. There is also a guide at the Microforms Counter called Mexican American Serials which lists some of the serials in this collection along with subject information.
