New guide to the Latin American ephemera collections at Princeton

Dear colleagues,

I recently finished putting together this guide and thought that it would be of interest to some of you: 

http://libguides.princeton.edu/laec

It lists by country and subject area all of the collections of Latin American ephemera that the Princeton University Library has developed since the late 1960s (approximately 350) and links to item level finding aids or catalog records that for the most part describe in considerable detail the contents of the collections.

Saludos,

Fernando
