LARRP Distributed Resources

Distributed resources is an agreement between participating North American libraries designed to strengthen the collective coverage of monographs and other resources produced in Latin America. Through the concerted reallocation of library collection budgets, enhanced coverage of “non-core” materials is provided in an interconnected network of collections. The total reallocated funding is more than $170,000 per year.

The participants also provide online bibliographic records as quickly as possible and make the majority of these materials available through interlibrary loan. The program is described in more depth in the article “The Latin Americanist Research Resources Project: A New Direction for Monographic Cooperation?” by Dan C. Hazen. You can also view the most recent Distributed Resources Report.

Specific member commitments are listed by LARRP Member Institution and by Subject Area.
