Latin American Studies

Collection Statement

The Latin American holdings in the Social Sciences and Humanities Library focus primarily on Mexico, Central America, and the Andean region, although there are research level collections for the other countries as well. All humanities and social science disciplines are included. Collections on women's studies, ethnic studies, immigration, and elections are especially strong for all countries in the region. UCSD also has access to extensive collections of Latin American electronic resources, including databases, electronic journals, full-text news services, and data sets.
