The Nettie Lee Benson Latin American Collection is one of the world’s premiere repositories of Latin American and U.S. Latina/o materials. It was founded in 1921 with the acquisition of a large private collection of Mexican material. Today, the library holds materials from across the region, comprising over one million books in the circulating collections, over 8,000 linear feet of archival and manuscript materials, more than 20,000 maps and 100,000 photographs, and tens of thousands of items in other media including sound recordings, video, drawings, and ephemera. In addition, the Benson maintains one of world’s largest collections of digital assets on Latin America, which includes unique archives in human rights, indigenous languages, and the first books published in the Americas.
