About LADB

The Latin America Data Base (LADB) is one of the longest running premier news and educational services on Latin America. Established in 1986 as a unit of the Latin American and Iberian Institute at the University of New Mexico, LADB has had an Internet presence since 1996.

LADB features three weekly electronic publications: NotiCen, NotiSur, and SourceMex, and a fully searchable Archive of over 28,000 articles that provide timely information and historical perspective on a variety of Latin American issues.

A key differentiator of LADB services is our editorial team, which includes professional journalists in Latin America that produce weekly articles in English on a variety of topics, placing events in context, and highlighting key developments throughout the region.

LADB's wealth of information is available through institutional and individual subscriptions. Our articles are accessed via academic, commercial, and non-profit libraries in the US and abroad by thousands of readers every month.

We are committed to providing affordable access to quality information on Latin America, and so our subscribers include organizations of all types, like the United Nations, Yale University, Stanford University, the London School of Economics, and other medium and small colleges and non-profit organizations worldwide.

Whether you work on academia, industry or a non-profit, LADB services will keep you apprised of current Latin American events that sometimes do not make it or are hard to follow through mainstream media. We are proud to be a one-stop independent information source for the most relevant events on Latin America every week.
