Purpose or Scope of Collection Print Page

Purpose or Scope of Collection

To support the courses of study offered by the University at the undergraduate and graduate levels in the areas of Chicano Studies, Boricua Studies, and the study of other U.S. born Latino populations and immigrant communities;Ethnic Studies, and to provide resource material needed to support independent scholarly research. The MSU Libraries collects as thoroughly as possible all library or archival materials which relate to Chicanos and Latinos in the United States, particularly those in Michigan and the Midwest, or which are written or produced by Chicanos or Latinos. Because of the multi-disciplinary nature of these fields, a number of departments and research centers have an interest in the materials acquired (e.g., the Julian Samora Research Institute, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, History, WRAC, American Studies, Anthropology, etc.).
