Due to the overwhelming demand from the general public to answer queries regarding Latin American Music which often times fall outside the scope of our mission to advance and provide highly specialized research on the topic, we can no longer offer research services to the general public. A list of general sources can be found below. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Individuals interested in browsing or researching our collection should be aware that with few exceptions, the holdings of the LAMC collection are part of the William and Gayle Cook Music Library collection. There is no separate facility hosting exclusively the LAMC collection. Therefore, you may access general information about the holdings of the LAMC (composer, title, publishing information, availability, etc.) by searching through the Online Catalogue of Indiana University (IUCAT). Please consult IUCAT before making any requests to the Center. Patrons may visit the collection during library hours.

You can find a list of resources by following the links on the top of this page. These resources aim to provide the general public, as well as musicians, with sources of information about Latin American music (popular, traditional, and art music). Call numbers correspond to those found at the William and Gayle Cook Music Library unless otherwise specified.
