The other tabs in the guide provide details of the collection as it currently stands and are arranged as follows:

The print collection is located within the larger Latin American collection on the 6th floor of the library, while new additions to the collection can be found in the New Acquisitions section on the 4th floor. In both cases, the books are available under the classmark range beginning PR
