LARRP Working Groups
The Communications and Outreach Working Group monitors the needs of our users for current and future projects through analysis of current use, polling users, and consultation with users. The working group promotes current projects and liaisons with Latin American members. More information about this working group can be found in the Communications and Outreach Workspace.
The Distributed Resources Working Group maintains and tracks present collecting responsibilities. It also helps new participants in LARRP’s Distributed Resources Project choose an area for collecting specialization based both on their priorities and on what other participants are collecting. This working group issues annual calls for participant reports on any available information on budget/expense figures, acquisitions and receipts, cataloging output, and anecdotal accounts of special purchases. More information about this working group can be found in the Distributed Resources Workspace.
The Official Documents Working Group explores avenues for providing greater access to Latin American Official Documents. This working group also oversees the Argentine and Mexican Presidential Messages Digital Database. More information about this working group can be found in the Official Documents Workspace.
The Open Archives Portal Working Group advises the project directors on issues related to the development of Open Archives Portal services at LANIC, with an initial focus on Latin American social sciences grey literature. It also identifies organizations that produce information appropriate for digitization under the project guidelines, reviews publications and other materials of Latin American partner organizations to establish priorities for digitization, and publicizes the Open Archives Portal project. More information about this working group can be found in the Open Archives Portal Workspace.
The Serials Working Group oversees the Latin American Periodicals Table-of-Contents (LAPTOC), and coordinates inputting of table of contents by members. The LAPTOC project is described in greater detail on the LAPTOC project page. More information about this working group can be found in the Serials Working Group Workspace.
