The BiblioNoticias series is an ongoing subject-oriented bibliography to which several new issues are added each year. The series is compiled by staff members at the Benson Latin American Collection and, except where otherwise noted, all materials cited are available in this library. Individual issues in the series address specific subject areas which are considered likely to be of interest to researchers within the field of Latin American Studies. Consequently, although the BiblioNoticias series is collection-specific (i.e., referring only to materials available at the Benson Latin American Collection), it is nonetheless a useful guide for any person wishing to find some initial bibliographic landmarks within a given subject area.
