New: Library of Congress Handbook of Latin American Studies Resource Guide
The Handbook of Latin American Studies (HLAS) Resource Guide is now published and available on the Library of Congress Research Guides site.
Since 1936, HLAS has made scholarly research on Latin America more easily accessible by working with researchers to identify and describe books, journal articles, conference proceedings and papers, book chapters, maps and atlases, and electronic resources.
From the HLAS Website:
The Handbook of Latin American Studies (HLAS) is a selective bibliography with annotations and bibliographic essays provided by 130 professors of anthropology (archeology and ethnology), art, geography, government and politics, history, international relations, literature, music, philosophy, political economy, and sociology; and edited by librarians in the Hispanic Reading Room at the Library of Congress.
Since 1936, HLAS has made scholarly research on Latin America more easily accessible by identifying and describing books, journal articles, conference proceedings and papers, book chapters, maps and atlases, and—more recently—electronic resources (blogs, websites, online videos, etc.). Annually, the Contributing Editors (those 130 professors) receive and review 2,000-3,000 published works from the Library of Congress collections. Their descriptions are added to the HLAS database and their essays are published annually by the University of Texas Press
