The Bodleian Latin American Centre Library is a specialist lending collection for those studying Latin American politics, economics and social sciences. It also has an extensive history collection, focused in particular on the twentieth century. Located at the Latin American Centre, it not only supports the Centre’s postgraduate students but welcomes all current resident members of the University who are interested in the subject area. See Admissions below for more information.
The library houses some 16,000 volumes, together with journals, a wide ranging grey literature collection, microfilms and DVDs. The stock is regularly updated. It has three reading rooms, all with wifi, including a seminar room and workspace. Over twenty journals are subscribed to, including popular titles like Proceso, Semana and Veja, and academic ones such as the Latin American Weekly and regional reports, the Latin American Research Review, the Journal of Latin American Studies and Quehacer.
The library is part of the Social Sciences Group of the Bodleian Libraries and is both a focus of scholarship and a popular meeting place for students. See our online guide to the library. Browse our latest acquisitions on LibraryThing and follow us on Facebook.
