Volume: 1 linear foot


The Princeton University Library has developed numerous collections of Latin American ephemera that are unique in their depth and scope. Most of the materials are in Spanish. Privileging the popular voices of the region, the collections document numerous political and social movements, and a wide variety of key socioeconomic and cultural developments. Some particularly well-documented topics are grassroots organizing, human rights, electoral politics, indigenous issues, women and gender issues, youth, the environment, health, education, and religion. Types of primary materials collected include pamphlets, non-commercially produced and distributed serials, flyers, posters, working papers, government publications, and other non-traditional formats. Most of the documentation in the collections was produced after the mid 1960s by Latin American nongovernmental organizations of all types, interest groups, political parties, research institutes, and government agencies.

Hist/Bio Note

The intensive collecting of ephemera was initiated by Barbara Hadley Stein, the University's Bibliographer for Latin America, Spain and Portugal (1966-1977).
