The Latin American and Iberian collections at Cambridge University Library exist to support the curriculum and research needs of the university in the humanities and the social sciences.
The research collections aim to include monographs and serials (both in paper and/or microform), electronic resources, audiovisual materials (when issued with print material), maps and atlases, and some older material for historical research. Although the emphasis on the acquisition of print material is still significant, several types of materials (mostly journals, indexes, and databases) are increasingly being acquired in electronic format.
The collection is estimated at over 75,000 items in Spanish, over 16,000 in Portuguese, and nearly 3,000 items in Catalan. A significant number of materials in English, French and German relating to Latin America and Iberia are also acquired (click here for more details).
