    The North American Congress on Latin America (NACLA), founded in 1966, grew out of a concern to analyze and challenge the actions and policies of the United States government and its agencies with respect to Latin America. To achieve a further goal of reporting its challenges and findings to the public, NACLA began publishing its own newsletters, reports, and pamphlets.

    This collection records the evolution and work of NACLA through its own publications. The ARCHIVE also preserves a substantial array of primary documents collected by NACLA as a part of its research and publishing program. The primary documents include materials not ordinarily available in library collections: posters, pamphlets, and fliers generated by the organizations and movements active in Latin America from 1960 to 1990. Also included are the reports and publications of various political movements and governments of the area. In general materials included in the NACLA ARCHIVE are those which are unavailable elsewhere in either hard copy or microformat.

    Note: The Library has acquired only selected portions (country files) of the NACLA ARCHIVE.
