New Latin American Historical Documents
Acquired by the Latin American Microform Project (LAMP)
The microfilm collection “Publicaciones Políticas y Culturales Argentinas," a compilation of periodicals issued by leftist organizations in Argentina (ca. 1900-1950), is now available via interlibrary loan through the Center for Research Libraries (CRL). The 38-reel microfilm collection was acquired by the Latin American Microform Project (LAMP), a scholarly association comprised of researchers from 43 North American research universities and based at CRL.
This is the second microfilm collection in a series of documented material from the Centro de Documentación e Investigación de la Cultura de Izquierdas en Argentina. (CeDInCI). The collection contains publications documenting the formation and development of the communist party in Argentina, anarchist publications, and political and cultural magazines produced by the Socialist Party. The collection also contains Renovacion and Flecha, two publications considered among the most important in understanding the cultural, political, and intellectual movements between 1923 and 1936. Additional monographic and periodical publications concerning communism and Uruguay and other Latin American countries are included. All of the collections are very rare, and in many cases, were filmed from the only available copies.
CRL is a consortium of 200-plus member libraries. “Publicaciones” is available for use at no cost to researchers affiliated with LAMP and CRL institutions. It is available to the public on a cost recovery basis by interlibrary loan or through CRL’s Reading Room in Chicago.
