Archives and Manuscripts on Microfilm in the Nettie Lee Benson Latin American Collection. A Checklist.
Garner, Jane, Comp.
This collection includes over 6,300 reels of microfilm of unique manuscript and archival holdings from both national and foreign repositories. Most of the material is historical, largely for Mexico from the colonial period to the early twentieth century. Three repositories account for the major portion of the holdings: the National Archives of the United States, the Archivo General de la Nacion de Mexico, and the Public Record Office of Great Britain. The Archivo General de Indias (Seville, Spain) is also represented, but not in significant amounts. The checklist is arranged according to four broad geographic areas: Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, and South America. Individual entries are alphabetical by author or title if there is no author, and includes information on the volumes and reels of microfilm, the original repository identification, and the Benson collection classification number. Only positive microfilm from United States repositories is available on interlibrary loan, and reproduction of any of the microfilm requires prior consent of the original repository. (Author/RAA)
