Spanish Language Databases

If you've ever wanted a way to do your research using Spanish language resources, then you may want to check out a few of the databases we have here at Seminole State that collect newspaper, magazine, and journal articles from a variety of Spanish language resources. Start by clicking this link and enter your Borrower ID and PIN numbers. Your Borrower ID is the number beneath the barcode on your Seminole State student ID, and the PIN will be the last digits of your Social Security Number.

You should see a list of subject headings...the very last one being titled "Spanish Language". These are the 3 databases:

*Acceda Noticias - Contains over 60 Spanish language newspapers, all available in full-text

*Clase and Periodica - These are actually two different indexes, collecting article citations dating back to the 1970s. Clase indexes articles published in Latin American and Caribbean journals, particularly concerning social sciences and humanities. Periodica indexes scientific and technological journals published in Latin American and the Caribbean.

*Informe! Revistas en Espanol - Lists citations and summaries of most articles, but includes the full-text of over 50 of the most popular Spanish language magazines and newspapers.

Maybe you'll find a new way to put together your research papers!
