  • Purchase the Collection

    Purchase includes perpetual access to over 500 Latin American Studies e-books. In subsequent years, purchasing libraries will have the option to "top up" their subject collection by buying the year's new batch of relevant titles. The 2018 collection includes the original collection presented in 2016 of over 500 e-books as well as titles published in 2017.

    Annual Lease for 2018

    Annual lease provides one calendar year of access (January to December 2018) to the Latin American Studies collection. For 2018, this includes over 500 titles. To maintain access after 2018, libraries will need to purchase the collection or renew the lease.

    Lease to Own

    Libraries that lease the Latin American Studies collection for five consecutive years are automatically upgraded to perpetual access to the collection.
