Yale Library Collaborates to Expand Brazilian Collection

Yale University Library has entered a collaborative agreement with nine other US university libraries to strengthen the collecting of materials from Brazil. Starting in 2015, each participating library will collect Brazilian monographs from specific regional and geographic areas, allowing better coverage of small publishers and of publications originating beyond the two Brazilian megacities, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.

“By collecting as a collaborative, [we] can develop a shared collection of greater diversity, depth, and comprehensiveness than could otherwise be created by any one institution,” says Jana Krentz, Librarian for the Latin American and Iberian Collections at Yale.
