[Forwarded from H-LATAM (H-Net Latin-American History List) via H-Net Central]
From: Jacquelyn Kent
Throughout the U.S., there are several sources of resource material, i.e., videos, slide collections, books, etc., that can be loaned to those teaching Latin American history on all levels from elementary school through universities. Phil and I have decided to compile a listing of these sources with brief descriptions of their holdings and place it on the H-LatAm gopher and the forthcoming H-LatAm WWW. Therefore, we ask that any of you with knowledge concerning any of these centers send in the relevant information on the centers, their lending policies, costs of catalogues (if any), etc. We are aware of a film library at Florida and collections available from Texas and New Mexico. Information from any of you familiar with both their holdings, policies, and charges would be most helpful.
Since many of us will soon be directing our attention towards the fall semester, please post your response to the list. This will assist all of us.
I will begin this collection with the Curriculum Resource Center at Tulane University. New catalogues of their collection are available for $5.00 and include listings for their lending library of several thousand items for classroom use including video and audio cassettes, films, books, records, slides, and maps. Unless otherwise noted in the catalogue, these are free for our use with a proviso that they be returned the day after use via insured delivery. Below is a broad listing of the subject areas covered in their collection.
The Latin American Curriculum Resource Center can be reached at: Center for Latin American Studies, Tulane University, 6823 St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans, LA 70118. Telephone: (504) 865-5164. E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. They are very helpful and can give you information via telephone or electronic mail on their holdings for specific items. They request AT LEAST three weeks notice for processing and delivery.
Selected Topics covered by the collection:
Art History: colonial modern, precolombian
Dictionaries and Bibliographies
Dance and Festivals
Education: Bilingual, Cross-cultural, International Folkarts
Geography and Environment
Hispanics in US
History and Political Change
Latin American Studies Directories/Guides Literature: Colonial, General, Modern, 19th century, Pre-Colombian Markets
Thanks, again, for your help.
