Library Resources

The Latin American Library, located on the fourth floor of Tulane's Howard-Tilton Memorial Library, is one of the world's foremost collections of source materials in all disciplines of the humanities and social sciences pertaining to Latin America.

Almost 20% of the Library's collection of 400,000 volumes relates to Brazil, and about 60,000 of these volumes are in Portuguese. An additional 10, 000 volumes of Brazilian literature and literary criticism are on the second floor of the Howard-Tilton Library. The library also subscribes to dozens of Brazilian periodicals. A bibliographic listing of the Brazilian periodicals in the Howard-Tilton Library is now available online.
