The Latin American Studies collection contains materials covering Latin America and the Carribeans. Its emphasis is on the humanities and social sciences, particularly language, literature, history, sociology, political science, marginalized groups, indigenous groups, and development studies.
The majority of the collection can be found in the Main (Gardner) Stacks, as well as in the over 20 subject specialty libraries and affiliated libraries. Our collection complements the Bancroft's Latin Americana collection.
