Cornell Latin American Collection

Cornell's Latin American library collection is recognized as one of the nation's best. It can claim more than 307,366 books, over 4,200 periodicals, and several hundred electronic resources published in and about Latin America. The collections contain material on the entire region, with particular strengths in the Andean region and Brazil, reflecting the emphases of Cornell's faculty. They are managed by two full-time library specialists, both working in Olin Library: an Ibero-American bibliographer who selects and provides reference service and an Ibero-American cataloger who makes the materials accessible to patrons through the on-line database. Additional sources of information on Latin America can be found in the University's Johnson Art Museum, which has important collections of pre-Columbian art objects.
