Easy Access to Spanish Language Articles

Students in Spanish classes as well as native Spanish and Portuguese speakers now have additional access to articles focused on Latin America. Here is the announcement from OCLC:

WorldCat now provides access to articles in
Latin American RedALyC eJournal collection

Article-level records for more than 350 scholarly eJournals from Latin America, the Caribbean, Spain and Portugal are now accessible through the WorldCat database. The eJournals representing more than 40,000 new records are provided by RedALyC, a research group from the Universidad Autónoma del Estado de México.

RedALyC provides open access to a collection of scholarly journals with a thematic focus on Latin America, including full text of all articles. The project was initiated in 2002 with the goal to contribute to the dissemination of scientific information edited in Latin America.

When researchers identify articles in the RedALyC eJournal collection through a WorldCat search, they can link from the article-level records to full text of articles on the RedALyC Web site.

Content in the RedALyC collection, which will be updated quarterly in WorldCat, is composed of eJournals in all social and scientific areas that provide access to thousands of peer-reviewed articles in Spanish, Portuguese and English.

Researchers will find RedALyC records in WorldCat search results on WorldCat.org, Connexion and the OCLC FirstSearch service.
