Purpose

I am compiling this webliography to provide an aggregation of weblogs, webliographies, and other web resources relating to the topic of contemporary Chicano/a literature in the United States. The webliography is meant to allow the author and users to have a convenient portal for finding information, book reviews, event announcements and author information on this topic. Entries will be annotated briefly to maximize usefulness.

This type of literature is of increasing importance as readers, libraries, classrooms and librarians in the United States become more and more diverse. People charged with working with people and working with books need access to books whose characters fairly and accurately reflect the lives and experiences of all different segments of our communities. Familiarity with the amazing words, stories and ideas presented in Chicano/a literature enrich the personal and professional lives of librarians and book lovers from all cultures.
