Latino Literature includes creative works by Latino authors: novels, works of poetry, drama, materials relating to dramatic productions such as playbills, production stills and audio files, as well a small amount of miscellaneous nonfiction. All works are reproduced in their entirety. The contents can be browsed or searched, or the drama collection can be searched by itself with a larger number of advanced search features. Users can also search for theater companies that have produced the works of drama included the database, and even for works containing characters based on particular people. The database includes a large number of previously unpublished works collected directly from the authors, making it a particularly rich resource for scholars of Latino/a and Latin American literature and culture.
