About the LANIC Etext Collection

The LANIC Etext Collection is designed to facilitate access to the hundreds of thousands of pages of full-text resources that are hosted on LANIC servers. These resources include research papers written by Latin American studies scholars; theses and dissertations; etext versions of books; conference proceedings; speeches by Latin American leaders; periodical publications; and official documents. Some of the etexts are in Spanish, others are in English. In all cases, copyright resides with the respective authors.
