This paper presents the recent development of the University of Texas--Latin American Network Information Center (UT-LANIC) and its role in Latin American Studies in the context of global diffusion of the Internet. This presentation introduces three new services: (1) interactive posting mechanism that makes it possible for Latin Americanists to announce their electronic publications on UT-LANIC automatically; (2) e-mail interface to UT-LANIC Servers that enables millions of users without full Internet connection to use their e-mail to access not only our Gopher/WWW services but also the entire Internet world; (3) searchable indexing of Latin American region and Latin American studies sites worldwide.
