What is the Dominican Republic Collection?
The Dominican Republic Collection was begun in 1995 to support the University's academic and service programs and the Institute for Latin American Concern (ILAC). The collection includes books, periodicals, and government publications about and from the Dominican Republic. Major subject areas include business, history, literature, and political science, among others.
Is the collection in English or Spanish?
The Library purchases books both in English and in Spanish. We attempt to purchase key materials in English which fit the subject criteria of the Dominican Republic Collection. Spanish-language titles, which still form the largest percentage of the collection, are now added infrequently.
How can I locate material in the collection?
The Dominican Republic Collection is shelved throughout the building by Library of Congress call number or SuDoc number. All titles in the collection are included in the Creighton Libraries Information Catalog (CLIC) with the special subject heading of "Dominican Republic Collection." Researchers can therefore browse a complete list of titles by searching for the phrase "dominican republic collection" as a Subject in CLIC. Author, title, and keyword searching is also possible. Researchers can also limit their search results to either English or Spanish.
