Two key databases in the subject area of Hispanic, Latin American and Caribbean Studies that are subscribed to by the Bodleian Libraries are PRISMA and HAPI. Both databases are available via Databases A-Z.

PRISMA (Publicaciones y Revistas Sociales y Humanísticas) is a comprehensive reference resource providing full-text scholarly journals in the social sciences and humanities for the interdisciplinary academic study of Hispanic and Latin America, and the Caribbean Basin.

HAPI (Hispanic American Periodicals Index) is your source for over 275,000 journal article citations about Central America, South America, the Caribbean, Mexico, Brazil, and Hispanics/Latinos in the United States.

Details of these and other databases and resources can be found in the Latin American Studies online guide.
