The Borderlands Encyclopedia

http://www.utep.edu/border/

The Borderlands Encyclopediais a project of the University of Texas at El Paso, and while it doesn’t directly speak on topics of Chicana/o literature, I think it is worthy of inclusion as a background resource for readers and information professionals new to Chicano/a literature and culture. This website contains both text and audio files on a wide range of topics related to the U.S./Mexico border. The site states:

The goal of The Borderlands Encyclopedia is the design, development and implementation of a multimedia instructional resource on contemporary issues of the U.S.-Mexico border for broad-based distribution to other educational agencies utilizing the WWW and CD-ROM technologies.

 Information in the Encyclopedia is divided up according to the following categories: Culture & Media, Economics & Business, Education & Training, Family Life & Population Groups, Government & Politics, and Health & Environment. There are also links to a Spanish language version of the site, an overview of the Borderlands Encyclopedia project, and a list of related Centers & Resources.

This resource is useful to information professionals serving Chicana/o populations wishing to gain a better understanding of the issues that arise around the US/Mexico border.
