About this Guide

The sequence of undergraduate and graduate programs of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese is designed to lead from the acquisition of competence in written and spoken Spanish or Portuguese, through an acquaintance with the structure and history of one or both of these languages and a critical understanding of the development and achievements of their literatures in the Old World and in the New, to training in advanced study and independent research. The department's policy is to maintain a balanced strength between language and literature and between Peninsular and Latin American facets of a unified field.

Collection Description

The Library actively collects and maintains a research level collection in support of the teaching and research of the faculty and students of the Spanish and Portuguese Studies Department. The collection offers resources in the languages, literatures, cultures of the Spanish and Portuguese-speaking world, also including Galician, Basque and Catalan materials. The collections support pluridisciplinary research and cover a wide geographical area. The study of these countries and cultures can be approached from a wide range of subjects. Frequently used collections for research include: Medieval Studies , Latin American Studies, Ethnic Studies (Chicano Studies collection), Linguistics, and Special Collections at the Bancroft Library.

The major part of the collection is housed in the Gardner (MAIN) Stacks, with additional materials in the library subject branches, such as the Environmental Design Library (city & urban planning, architecture), Music, etc. Manuscripts, archives, and rare materials are housed in the Bancroft Library.

    Book Reviews

    Most library databases for this grouping index primarily US and UK publications. The online and print sources listed below are better for non-US reviews. MLA, Historical Abstracts, and Periodicals Index Online are also good article databases for locating discipline-specific reviews in Iberian studies as are specific journals like Hispanófila, Revista Iberoamericana, or Revista de Literatura.

    The Campaign for the University Library

    Monetary Gifts: Endowments, Major Gifts, Memorial Gifts, Matching Gifts, Planned Gifts, Bequests, Trusts
    Book Donations and Library Wish List
    Contribute Online or Contribute by Mail

    Berkeley’s world-class education and research depend on the ready access offered by the Library to a comprehensive record of human knowledge, together with the latest discoveries in every field of learning.

    From rare and precious manuscripts to thousands of titles used in day-to-day research, the University Library’s Spanish and Portuguese collection supports students and faculty in Berkeley’s academic departments and programs. The holdings range from core collections housed in the Doe/Moffitt Libraries to specialized research materials in our fourteen subject specialty libraries. Just as Berkeley’s academic programs consistently rank at the top among their peers worldwide, the Library's collections that support those departments are internationally renowned for their depth and breadth.

    The University Library is seeking private support to maintain the excellence of its collections. The cost of building these collections has increased dramatically, due to spiraling book and journal costs, as well as to the declining value of the dollar. It is due, as well, to a burgeoning of new information - a dramatic rise in the number and specialization of journals, the availability of full text and searchable electronic versions of items previously held only in print, and the emergence of new genres of digital content.

    Monetary Gifts

    Financial support is very important to the future development and ongoing curation of the library's collections. Contributions provide funding for expensive resources, specialized equipment, conservation of rare books, and exhibits or special projects. Financial gifts may be unrestricted or support a specific library program, service, or collection. In addition to cash, the Library welcomes securities and other real or tangible property.

    Endowments- Endowment funds may be established with a gift of $50,000 or more to support library collections, programs, projects or positions. These endowed funds provide the University Library, in perpetuity, with an annual income that ensures our collections and programs remain strong and vital regardless of the strength of state and campus budgetary support. Donors may choose to support specific programs, projects, or library materials in a discipline or area of the donor's choice. We encourage interested donors to contact us or the Library Development Office to discuss possible endowment opportunities.

    Major Gifts - Significant contributions toward Library enhancements are welcomed and could include a recognition plaque or naming opportunities for improved areas, subject to campus approval procedures.

    Memorial Gifts - Contributions given in memory or in honor of a person or to mark a special occasion are recognized with a bookplate and family members notified. For a gift of $1,000, a named memorial book fund can be established, and for gifts totaling $50,000 or more, a named memorial library endowment fund with its own special bookplate can be created.

    Matching Gifts - Some firms match their employee's gifts to higher education. Ask your company's Matching Gifts Coordinator, or call 510/642-9377, and we will provide you with a list of companies with matching gift programs.

    Planned Gifts - You may invest in the Library's future by including it in your estate plans without decreasing assets during your lifetime.

    Bequests - The simplest method for a planned gift is to include the Library in your will. Bequests can take the form of cash, securities, or other property, and may be a specific sum or a stated percentage of the estate.

    Trusts - A trust can be established to produce income for the donor or others during their lifetimes and ultimately provide future support for the Library. Cal's Gift Planning staff can provide assistance in determining an appropriate arrangement to meet your individual needs.

    Book Donations

    Gifts of scholarly materials and the results of research have historically represented a significant element in the development of Berkeley's outstanding research collections. We welcome individual gifts, but due to space and staff limitations, we must be judicious in accepting large contributions. Donations of recently published books are welcomed. New book purchases will be checked to ensure titles aren’t already on order.

    Please contact Frank Carothers to discuss your donation of books.

    Spanish and Portuguese Wish List

    Please consider donating or underwriting the following item:

    Digital journal and ebook packages through DIGITALIA

Publicaciones de la Universidad de Alicante, Trotta, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and more.
    Donations of any amount accepted for individual titles or subject packages
