New Database: Cuban Periodicals, Cultural Magazines Published by Casa de las Américas

Covers of magazines from Casa de las Américas

The UW-Madison Libraries has acquired access to the digitized back issues of four Cuban cultural magazines via the Cuban Periodicals database from Brill. The four titles, published by Casa de las Américas (Anales del Caribe, Boletín de Música, Casa de las Américas, and Conjunto), are available in the database from their first issue through 2009. This database acquisition fills in significant gaps in the Libraries’ print holdings. The database features full-text search capabilities and full-page color scans. UW-Madison affiliates may access Cuban Periodicals from the Database Library or by searching our library catalog by journal title. UW-Libraries maintains a print subscription to Casa de las Américas and Conjunto, and current issues are available at Memorial Library.
