Online Resources

This selective collection of websites provides access to resources supporting research and teaching on Brazilian topics. Other sites not exclusively devoted to Brazilian Studies have been included on this page because they offer valuable link collections of relevance to Brazilianists. Broad in scope, these online resources include gateways to Brazilian universities, archives, and research centers; bibliographies and journal literature indexes; virtual libraries; doctoral dissertation databases; directories of researchers; and statistical datasets.

The Researching Brazil Google Custom Search box (upper right corner) has been configured to perform an aggregate search that automatically queries some of the most prominent sites listed below.
