Research Links for Students

 Research Links


On this page you will find a variety of links to academic and non-academic sites. The focus is on Latin American and Caribbean history and the West Indian diaspora. However, you will also find several general purpose links that are of interest to students of history and surfers who have been blown off course and have washed up on these shores. Please report any problems to harpelle@lakeheadu.ca.
