The Center for Latin American & Caribbean Studies Resources

The Center for Latin American & Caribbean Studies has a wide array of FREE resources available to faculty, students and educators. We have over 80 events annually, including lectures, workshops, films, concerts and conferences. We seek to strengthen interdisciplinarity, develop more experiential learning opportunities, foster language development, expand regional knowledge, support internationalization of the professional schools, and partner with K-12 schools, community colleges, and other Universities. The Center's resources, available for check-out, are acquired and updated frequently.

In order to borrow materials from the Center, please follow the check-out instructions.

Additional Latin American area studies resources may be found in KU's Ermal Garinger Academic Resource Center (EGARC), which promotes the learning and teaching of languages, cultures, and the humanities at the University of Kansas.
