This is supported by the college division of the publishing company Houghton Mifflin and offers a wide variety of links to resources.


The LANIC site is maintained by the University of Texas at Austin. These Latin American resources are categorized by country and subject, offering a large selection of possible links. One may, for example, select Venezuela and find links to Venezuelan business information, newspapers, magazines, politics and general information. These sites are useful in projects that call for students to create their own websites about Latin American culture.
