LAMP (previously known as the Latin American Microform Project) has received microfilmed copies of several Brazilian women’s journals from the 19th century, which were microfilmed by Brazil’s Biblioteca Nacional. These seventeen reels contain such titles as Novo Correio de Modas (1852–54), O Sexo Feminino (1873–89), and A Mai de Familia (Jan 1879–Dec 1888).  The collection will be available for interlibrary loan from CRL.
