The books from Paraguay and their acquisition represents an unique challenge to the Latin American Studies selector due to several factors. The select vendors who supply the books from the region as well as the limited number of academic level books that get published in Paraguay are some of those factors. Despite these limitations, at UC Berkeley’s Doe Library, we collect books from all parts of South America. I am glad to share with you some limited photos of these new book purchases at the library. As far as the selection tools are concerned, the online presence of La Cámara del Libro de Asunción Paraguay (CLAP) serves to be of limited use. However, there is a list of local bookshops and publishers that can be of great use to the selectors. Please click on the photo below to get access to the full album.
