Library Research for Latin American & Caribbean Studies

FIU Libraries has a rigorous library instruction program for both students and faculty.

The FIU Libraries, together with LACIC, provide customized workshops on information literacy skills for the LACC certificate programs and the Master of Arts program. Also available are open workshops for faculty and students on research strategies for Latin America and the Caribbean.

These workshops and classes can help you and/or your class to recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate and effectively use the information. The main objectives can be customized to include several or all of the following:

  • become familiar with traditional resources
  • develop and refine search strategies
  • learn how to navigate in an electronic research environment
  • identify resources not owned at FIU and the most appropriate way to get them
  • identify and evaluate Internet resources
Please contact Stephanie Brenenson, the Library Instruction Coordinator for more information.

Extended Research Consulations - The LACIC Librarian is available to assist you in your research. Please contact Gayle Williams to schedule a research session.
