Duke Library Resources

The Duke Libraries have more than 400,000 journals, volumes, newspapers, photographs and other resources on Latin America and the Caribbean. These resources span the social sciences and the humanities, emphasizing political and institutional history, labor history, political economy, political humor, sociology, women's studies, demography, anthropology and archeology, and international and inter-American relations.

Duke's Latin America and the Caribbean collections also includes rare books from the 16th century onwards.

Find more resources by visiting thethe Duke Library Latin American and Caribbean Studies page and the archive for human rights.

The collection is further enhanced by one of the oldest cooperative acquisitions programs in the country between Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Both universities work cooperatively to purchase research-level materials, special formats, and expensive items such as censuses, films, and large documentary microform collections. See the consortium collection.
