This is a general website about Chicano literature created and maintained by Patricia Portales, M.A. from the San Antonio College in San Antonio, TX. Portales describes the site as an “index of authors [that] will provide bilbliographic information for each author, including links to other World Wide Web resources. It is also my hope that this site will serve as a forum for students; thus, papers on Chicano Literature will be considered for publication on this site.”
The resources on the site are divided up into the following categories: General Resources on Chicano Literature, Chicano Resources, Upcoming Multicultural Events (mostly in the San Antonio area) and Authors. The site does not seem to be updated very frequently, but it is still a valuable resource. The most useful part of this website is the extensive list of Chicana/o authors, linking to brief bios and external sources for each one.
I recommend this website as a good starting place for students, readers, librarians and educators who are interested in learning more about a broad range of Chicana/o authors. The strength of this site is the breadth of its focus, and its links to other websites.
