Latin Americana Reference Works in The Bancroft Reading Room

This is a selected listing of reference works in The Bancroft Library Reading Room. Because it is designed to highlight the reference collection, it is not organized like a traditional bibliography; instead the list is separated into two sections. The first section is organized by format (Guides, Atlases, Dictionaries, etc.), and the second section is organized into four broad subject areas (Anthropology, Art, History, and Statistics). Note that certain formats, such as dictionaries and bibliographies, often contain a tremendous amount of useful reference information.
