Beyond Princeton

  • Latin American Newspapers in United States Libraries: A Union List
    Compiled by Steven Charno (Conference on Latin American History Publications, University of Texas Press, 1968). This resource remains one of the best reference works for publishing information and newspaper holdings related to Latin America. No subsequent publication has superseded it in terms of comprehensiveness. This resource, long out of print, presents detailed holdings data on approximately 5,500 Latin American newspapers in U.S. libraries. Though published nearly 40 years ago, "Charno" as it it known, is still viewed as an essential guide for the analysis of holdings for the many Latin American newspaper collections in the U.S.
