The ACLAIIR Directory of Latin American and Iberian Audiovisual Collections in the UK has just been updated. If you haven’t seen this resource before, take a look at our Projects page.
The Directory was originally conceived to bring to light and publicise audiovisual resources currently available in the United Kingdom for the study and research of Latin America and Iberia.
The Directory includes entries to 24 organizations and academic institutions with audiovisual holdings relating to these regions. Although not comprehensive, the listings provide an indication of the variety and breadth of these resources within the country. The directory will be updated on an annual basis to ensure that information is kept up-to-date.
Each entry in the directory contains a brief description of the nature and scope of the collections, information about access, and a contact name and email address. Amongst the holdings represented are feature films, documentaries, music and radio broadcasts in a variety of formats. The vast majority of the collections can be accessed online via the institution’s or organisation’s library catalogues. In most cases, material can be consulted on-site, but you are advised to call before visiting to avoid disappointment.
We hope that you will find the Directory useful and we thank all organisations and institutions which have provided information to make it possible. If your organisation is not included and you have a relevant collection, please get in touch!
Many thanks to Sonia Morcillo-García for keeping the Directory up to date.
