There are many resources to use to find books at UCSD, as well as the broader San Diego, California, and Global Community. A useful strategy is to begin with MELVYL to search for books available throughout the University of California System. Because it draws from UC records in WorldCat (a consortial, global library catalog), this approach allows you to expand out to global and international searches from MELVYL by selecting "Libraries Worldwide" from the drop-down menu, or to drill down to San Diego libraries by selecting "Search San Diego" or just UCSD by selecting "Search UCSD." Alternatively, you can use ROGER to do a UCSD-specific or CIRCUIT to do a San Diego-specific library search in online systems that are not connected to WorldCat. Other resources, including HaithiTrust, Cibera, and the Handbook of Latin American Studies provide additional citations. Beginning with MELVYL and then expanding to broader searches or narrowing to more narrow ones is a useful strategy because the interface includes faceting, which helps you to narrow down the results of your search by format, subject, or other criteria.
HathiTrust Digital Library is a digital preservation repository and an access platform. It provides long-term preservation and access services for public domain and copyrighted content from a variety of sources, including Google, the Internet Archive, Microsoft, and in-house partner institution initiatives. Content is full-text searchable; most items published before 1923 are full-text viewable and downloadable.
This is a world-wide, consortial catalog of OCLC member libraries that includes over 50 million online records in multiple formats. MELVYL (The University of California Libraries) is a selection of WorldCat records. This is the best place to look for a particular source that is not held in California, or to do a search by subject heading(s) to find materials outside of California. The link above brings you into one of two versions of WorldCat provided by UCSD Library. For the other, click on Databases A-Z and choose the WorldCat FirstSearch option. This allows you to see more more details about and to have more options in searching for similar records.
The Handbook of Latin American Studies is an annotated bibliography of Latin American Studies literature produced by research librarians at the Library of Congress.

The basic keyword search box on the library of Congress search interface (linked above through Handbook of Latin American Studies) is a useful place to begin a general search.
An excellent feature of the print and online versions of the Handbook are the introductory essays to each subject area. To access these online:
For volumes 50-57, Click on “HLAS Resources,” then “TOCs for Vols. 50-59 and Introductory Essays for Vols. 50-57,” then volume want, then subject, then “introductory essay” link at top
For Volumes 1-49, Click on “Expert Search,” type subject you are searching for the introductory essay on in the “Annotation and HLAS Chapter Introduction keyword/s” box, click “required” – if you wish, can narrow by selecting a volume/date range
