Portuguese Studies Collections and Services Development
Interest in Portuguese Studies is growing, as evidenced by a new Minor in Portuguese Language and Luso-Brazilian Studies at the University of Washington. Previously, Portuguese was only taught to the 200-level course. Now, students are researching in Portuguese and can access a collection with 300 items published in Brazil, Portugal, Mozambique, and two LibGuides with digital collections and repositories from Lusophone countries. This project aimed to improve the Portuguese studies collections, teaching, and research support services to meet students' information needs.
