The Handbook of Latin American Studies is a bibliography on Latin America consisting of works selected and annotated by scholars. Edited by the Hispanic Division of the Library of Congress, the multidisciplinary Handbook alternates annually between the social sciences and the humanities. Each year, more than 130 academics from around the world choose between 2,000-3,000 works for inclusion in the Handbook. Continuously published since 1936, the Handbook offers Latin Americanists an essential guide to available resources.
The Handbook is available in three formats: print volumes, now published by the University of Texas Press; a CD-ROM produced and updated by the Fundación Histórica TAVERA (Madrid, Spain); and the two web versions. Updated weekly, HLAS Online provides rapid, comprehensive access to future, current, and retrospective volumes of the Handbook, along with the introductory essays for volumes 1-49.
