Latin American North East Libraries Consortium (LANE)
The Latin America North East Libraries Consortium (LANE) is formed by a group of academic and research libraries in the northeastern United States committed to building and maintaining Latin American studies collections. The consortium seeks to promote collaborative projects that enhance the depth and scope of the combined collections and to facilitate access to them. The information available on this site is intended not only for the use of LANE members, but also for researchers who may have an interest in learning about the availability of Latin American research resources in the region. Our Working Documents may be particularly useful in this respect.LADB
