Access to Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Latin American History now available

AnnaSansome23 September 2019

UCL now has access to the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Latin American History, a collection of in-depth, peer-reviewed articles written by subject experts across a wide-range of topics in Latin American history.

The articles are designed to give readers a solid foundational overview of a given topic as well as forming the basis for further research. The encyclopedia is updated monthly with new articles, revisions to existing essays or summaries of forthcoming articles. The resource incorporates multimedia content, including images and videos.

This new subscription complements UCL’s existing access to the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of American History, which follows the same continuously-updated, peer-reviewed format.

Please send feedback on this resource to your subject librarian.
