Thanks to a grant from the Mellon Foundation, we’ve worked with El Colegio de México to digitize nearly 600 important scholarly books and make them available to everyone on an Open Access basis. These titles have been highly used in the six months since we started adding them to JSTOR: every book has been accessed, and there have been more than 175,000 chapter views and downloads in 180 countries and territories!

We are now working on digitizing approximately 90 additional titles. As new titles are added, they’ll be listed in the Books section on the publisher’s page, and you can also use our free MARC records or activate our Open Access collection in your discovery service.

Attending this year’s Latin American Studies Association conference? Join Frank Smith, Director of the Books at JSTOR program, for an introduction to this collaboration and the content now freely available to scholars around the world.
