Latin American Ephemera: Digitized Microfilm Sets Princeton University

This site is gradually making digitally available an early and vast subset of the Latin American Ephemera Collection that was only accessible in microfilm or by visiting Special Collections. In time, it will include more than three hundred thematically and geographically organized sub-collections ranging in size from a handful of items to hundreds of them. Click on the "Browse the Collections" link above to explore them. The content available in this site is not included in the Digital Archive of Latin American and Caribbean Ephemera, a repository containing materials predominantly created after the turn of the 21st century.

The Latin American Ephemera Collection consists of thousands of pamphlets, brochures, flyers, posters and other printed items created since around the last quarter of the 20th century by a wide array of social activists, non-governmental organizations, government agencies, political parties, public policy think tanks, and other types of organizations across Latin America, in order to publicize their views, positions, agendas, policies, events, and activities. The vast majority are rare, hard-to-find primary sources unavailable elsewhere.
