The Latin American Journals Project was established by Tom McEnaney (former Assistant Professor of Comparative Literature at Cornell) in collaboration with Cornell University Library’s Digital Consulting & Production Services in order to provide a hub for scholars across the globe to more easily access literary and cultural journals published in the Hispanophone Caribbean and Latin America during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Many of these journals remain difficult to find in their printed form, and/or hard to access in private collections, including in many of the countries where the journals first appeared. Our ambition has been to make these journals accessible to the largest possible audience for scholarly work. Unfortunately, legal limitations have forced us to structure the site with different tiers of access. If you have suggestions for additional titles that should be made available through this site, please contact us, and we will do our best to work with you (whether as an individual or a partner institution) to do so.

Acknowledgements

Special thanks to lead graduate assistant Sam Carter for his indefatigable work identifying sources, researching journals, and cleaning digital files. Thanks also to graduate assistants Diana Hamilton, Rebecca Kosick, and Paloma Yannakakis for their help building indices in the project's initial stages.

Jaron Porciello and Mickey Casad were instrumental in enlisting the library and tracking down resources at the outset, as  Desiree Alexander was to locating journals, working with vendors, and generally seeing the project through.  Thanks also to all those in the Cornell University Library who had a hand in bringing these collections together and making them discoverable, especially Mira Basara, Caitlin Finlay, Melissa Wallace, Jenn Colt, Dianne Dietrich and Barbara Eden.

Additionally, thanks need to be given to our partners in digital libraries, most notably The Center for Research Libraries and Hathi Trust. Without this collaborative approach we would not have near the depth of resources and content currently available.
