About us


The Bodleian Latin American Centre Library is a specialist loan collection for those studying Latin American politics, economics and social sciences.  It also has an extensive history collection, focused in particular on the twentieth century.

The Library is located at the Latin American Centre, St Antony's College (links open in new windows). While its primary role is to support postgraduate students taking the MSc Latin American Studies, MPhil Latin American Studies and the MSc Public Policy in Latin America (links open in new windows), the Library welcomes all current resident members of the University who are interested in the subject area. See Admissions for more information.

The library houses some 16,000 volumes, together with journals, a wide ranging grey literature collection and microfilms. The stock is regularly updated.

The Library has three reading rooms, all with wifi, including a seminar room and workspace. Over twenty journals are subscribed to, including popular titles like Proceso, Semana and Veja, and academic ones such as the Latin American weekly and regional reports, the Latin American Research Review and Quehacer.

The library is part of the Social Sciences Group of the Bodleian Libraries (opens in new window).

The Library is both a focus of scholarship and a popular meeting place for students.
