LatinX Library Resources Guide

MPC is proud to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month and National Hispanic Serving Institution Week. At MPC, more than 40% of our students and 20% of our Faculty and Staff identify as Hispanic or Latina/o/x. This guide is designed to provide those interested in learning about the experiences of Hispanic and Latina/o/x groups. Most importantly, it is meant to empower and provide affirmation to our Hispanic communities. This guide is one of the many ways we are committed to ensuring that MPC is responsive to the needs of our students.

This guide was created through collaborative efforts of the Hispanic Serving Institution Office, Library, Sociology Department, and Spanish Department. Thank you to all of those that contributed.

Special thanks to Diana Baltazar, Juanita Vasquez, Elisabeth Thomas, and Diego Espinoza for their artistic vision.
