The Latin Americanist Research Resources Project (LARRP) is a cooperative initiative that seeks to increase free and open access to information in support of learning and scholarship in Latin American Studies. It mobilizes collaborative activities among individuals and organizations on a global scale but focuses on relationships within the academic library community.
LARRP achieves its mission by:
- Providing access to information that supports all forms of scholarship
- Promoting free and equitable access to these resources for the global scholarly community
- Actively seeking partnerships with institutions that contribute to the flow of information
LARRP is made possible through the support of the Center for Research Libraries, which serves as its administrative, fiscal, and legal agent.
LARRP is funded by participating institutions through an annual membership fee. These aggregated funds are then made available to potential projects through an annual proposal process. LARRP has funded many openly accessible digitization projects related to Latin American studies in recent years.
LARRP’s annual Members Meetings are held at Seminar on the Acquisition of Latin American Library Materials conferences.
