About This Guide

Welcome to the research guide for LAS 2098: The Legacy of Mesoamerica. My name is Rebecca Lloyd, and I'm the librarian for Latin American Studies at Temple.  I'll be co-teaching some portions of the class along with Professor Ron Webb.  Students taking this course must sign-up for a mandatory research consultation with me before spring break. The consultation has several purposes, the main one being to provide one-on-one assistance with the course's information literacy assignments. Click the blue "Schedule Appointment" button to at the right to set up a meeting with me.

LAS 2098 students can use this research guide to identify key concepts and search terms; obtain reliable background information from scholarly encyclopedias; search the Diamond catalog for books; identify key library databases and credible websites; and mange their sources with RefWorks.
