This is a guide to important print and electronic reference sources in the field of Spanish and Portuguese literatures. The emphasis is on material available in the University of Maryland Libraries' collections, but some Internet sources are also included
Thanks in part to our membership in BTAA, and with additional support from the Libraries and University administrations, we are happy to announce that we now have access to several new resources. All of these one-time purchases directly support the University of Maryland’s curriculum, and all have been requested by faculty to use in their teaching and research.
