Database of Materials Relating to Latin America, Caribbean and US Southwest, Being Developed for Secondary-Level Use

From Lisa Falk <RETANET@ladb.unm.edu>, 28 March 1995

The Latin America Data Base is gathering information on Latin American curriculum materials for grades 6-12 to be included in a computer database called "Resources for Teaching about the Americas network" (RETAnet). This information will be available for free to Internet users worldwide.

We are searching for materials that will help secondary teachers when forming lesson plans or teaching about the Americas. We are also interested in secondary curricula that deals with Latin America. To have your organization's resources included in the database, please fill out the form below. We appreciate you filling out one form for each resource. To ease the creation of the data base, please follow the form as closely as possible. Please don't send us your materials; however, if there are P.R. brochures of them, feel free to send them. We are only creating an annotated list: educators will contact you directly to request your materials.

The Latin America Data Base is part of the Latin American Institute at the University of New Mexico. LADB boasts a nine-year track record as a leader in the field of electronic publishing and database production. LADB generates timely, comprehensive information on Latin America through its three electronic publications, "Chronicle of Latin American Economic Affairs," "NotiSur - Latin American Political Affairs," and "SourceMex - Economic News and Analysis on Mexico." These publications and the developing RETAnet database are available via Internet.

Thank you for sharing your information. We hope that the RETAnet database will help make your materials more accessible to educators. If you have any questions please call Lisa Falk or Andy Olson at 505-277-8541 or 277-6839 or email at retanet@ladb.unm.edu
