Microfilmed collection of 600 serials from across Latin America, from the Nettie Lee Benson Latin American Collection, including government publications and other serials published primarily between 1821 and 1982. The rare and endangered titles were originally captured on microfilm during the early1980s through a U.S. Department of Education Title II-C grant. The Benson Library created archival-quality master negatives, but was unable make these accessible until print masters and catalog records could be created. The LAMP effort supported the duplication of film, which included a copy to be held at the Center for Research Libraries, and Texas supported the cataloging of the resources. This eight-year effort added approximately 900 reels of microfilm to LAMP’s collection....

The Princeton University Library (PUL) sought support from the Latin Americanist Research Resources Project (LARRP) for digitizing an extensive hidden collection of ephemeral materials from Latin America. The proposed 3-year pilot project is an essential step in the larger process of making the digitally reformatted ephemera freely and globally available through a discovery interface which will include faceted searching and browsing. Outcomes of the 3-year project are approximately 12,800 digital objects with accompanying item-level descriptive metadata, deployment of a scalable, sustainable and replicable model for timely online disclosure of similar collections with a robust...

The project includes two online digital collections of audio recordings of Spanish sociolinguistic corpora from Santiago, Chile, and Southern California from the late 1970s and the early 1990s. The recordings, which total 156 hours, were created by University of Southern California professor emerita of Spanish, Portuguese, and linguistics Carmen Silva-Corvalán. They were recorded on original audiocassettes—the majority of which are now nearly 40 years old—and include: 1) 93 hours of recordings from 49 Spanish speakers in Santiago, Chile, during 1978 and 1992; 2) 42 hours of Spanish-language recordings from 47 Mexican-American speakers from various age groups in Southern California in 1976; and 3) 21 hours including much code-switching between Spanish and English by 16...
