Latin American Microfilm Collections

The Libraries have several large microfilm collections which contain primary source materials related to Latin America. 

Center for Research Libraries

Center for Research Libraries  (CRL) is a consortium of North American academic and independent research libraries. The consortium acquires and preserves newspapers, journals, documents, archives, and other traditional and digital resources for research and teaching and makes them available to member institutions through Interlibrary Loan.  The University of Maryland Libraries is a member of CRL.

Of interest to Latin Americanists is the The Latin American Microform Project (LAMP) which includes microform and digitized collections of unique, scarce, rare and/or bulky and voluminous research materials pertaining to Latin America.   The Lamp Collections Page describes the holdings of this collection.
