This subject guide covers the different Spanish resources the Tredway Library has for you to use, as well as information on other places you can look to support your research needs.

Below are listed some of the library's journal databases that may be of use to you for Spanish research. Some databases may be more appropriate for your topic than others, and some have more articles in Spanish than others. Pay attention to the databases' descriptions; to see a full list of our databases, please look at our A-Z database list

Newspapers are great places to look to find information and learn different perspectives of different events. Included below are several very helpful newspaper databases; some are for current news, while others are historical newspapers. Look at the descriptions to find out the years covered. 

If you're specifically searching for newspaper articles from other countries and are having a hard time finding resources, reach out to the Spanish librarian, María.

Sometimes we may not have full-text access to an article that you need. However, there is still a way you can access it by using Interlibrary Loan (ILL). ILL is a service that is free for the Augustana community, and allows you to request articles that you would like to use for your research. If you don't have an account yet, make sure to make one now!

If an article isn't available to you, you will see a "Request item from Interlibrary Loan" option that you may select. You can also use the link below to sign into your account, and manually enter the article information.

Once a request is received, library staff members will search for the item and attempt to obtain it from another library. Articles and book chapters are delivered to your email as a PDF within 24-48 hours. Physical items (books, DVDs, scores, etc.) typically take 5-10 business days (does not include weekends) to arrive from the lending library.
