Members of the Latin Americanist Research Resources Project (LARRP) now have the option of subscribing to the Americas Barometer Surveys, produced by the Latin American Public Opinion Project (LAPOP).

LAPOP has developed a treasure trove of public opinion surveys about political attitudes and behaviors through years of polling in Latin America and the Caribbean. These surveys are of great interest to social scientists, Latin Americanists, government officials, civil society organizations, and interested citizens.

Visit the LARRP workspace (access restricted to LARRP members only–login required) for more details.

The Impact of CRL

Stories illustrating CRL’s impact on research, teaching, collection building and preservation.

Guantanamo and Caribbean Newspapers Expand Research and Teaching Opportunities

Professor Sharika Crawford was excited to see the collection of several newspapers published at Guantanamo Naval Base in Cuba preserved by the Latin American Materials Project (LAMP) and available openly through the Digital Library of the Caribbean. These Guantanamo newspapers include Gitmo Review (1963-1964), Daily Gazette (1980-1987) and others, which offer articles on national and foreign news as well as local events and sports.

CRL Resources Integral to Cornell’s Latin American Journals Project
