The Latin American Library provides access to news sources from 22 countries in many formats, ranging from rare print copies of 18th century newspapers to electronic databases with full-text access to current news publications from around the region. A guide to all of our news sources in print, microform and electronic format is available in our News and Newspapers: Latin America Research Guide.

Non-Rare Printed Newspapers

The Latin American Library currently subscribes to newspapers from Central America and elsewhere in Latin America and the Caribbean. In addition, the LAL holds 216 titles of printed newspapers from c. 1940s to the present. Most of these newspapers are housed in the library’s offsite facility and require one day for retrieval. Please consult with the staff at the Latin American Library. For a complete listing of these 216 titles , do a keyword search for "LAL Newspapers in Storage" in the Tulane University Libraries Catalog.

The Library also holds a large selection of Latin American newspapers in microformat. LAL microfilm can be consulted on the 2nd floor of Howard—Tilton Memorial Library. For more information, visit our Microfilm Collections page.

Rare Newspapers (c. 18th century-1930s)

The LAL has extensive holdings of rare printed newspapers from 22 countries. The inventory below includes printed newspaper holdings from each country housed in the Library's Rare and Closed Stacks locations. This inventory will be updated periodically when new titles are added.


Additional Latin American and Caribbean newspapers not held at Tulane are available for loan from other academic libraries. The Center for Research Libraries is an excellent source for borrowing print and microfilmed newspapers not held at Tulane.
