Cooperative Program with University at Albany for Latin American Studies

Working with the University at Albany, Binghamton University has entered a cooperative collection project focused on Latin American Studies.
The two universities will share access to the Chicano Database. The Chicano Database is the premier database covering the Latino experience in the United States. It provides more than 60,000 citations to journal articles, book chapters, newspaper articles, and books. Despite its name, the database covers Mexican-Americans/Chicanos, Puerto Ricans, Cuban Americans and Central Americans.
For the second part of the project, we have entered into a book-buying agreement that will focus on books from Puerto Rico, about Puerto Rico. This will enable us to deepen our collection of Puerto Rican materials, purchasing non-core materials. Albany will cover books on Economics, Education, Health, Music, Poetry, Political Science, Sociology, and Theatre. Binghamton will select books in Anthropology, Art, Environmental Studies, Fiction, History, Philosophy, and Religion.
Binghamton students interested in reviewing books found in Albany’s catalog, can request the books via the interlibrary loan service ILLiad. Books requested from other SUNYs are delivered within 48 hours thanks to SUNY Connect’s LAND delivery service.
