Founded in 1961, the Latin American Music Center (LAMC) has been promoting and disseminating Latin American music. The library and collections of the center are world-renowned and serve to support the academic mission at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, as well as an international constituency. Services provided by the Center, such as concerts, lectures, festivals, and competitions, depend upon the materials within the Center’s library and archives. Specific needs for content-delivery have dictated the cataloging approaches for these materials. In the past, it has been difficult to provide access for researchers inquiring about composers’ heritage, repertoire, instrumentation, subjects, and genres.

From acquiring to cataloging to finding and delivering, we will address some of the peculiarities inherent in the broad diversity of Latin American music collections and its constituents. Through the creation and development of the Latin American Composers Project (providing access through nationalities), the LAMC Perusal Library (preserving heritage, unique materials and opportunities for repatriation), and an exploration of Latin American controlled vocabularies, we will show how we are approaching the needs of our diverse constituency.
