Summer Borrowing

Because we conduct an inventory of the entire collection during the summer, regular borrowing is not possible. If you want to preview or use items in a course over the summer, you must turn in a request form by June 15th that includes ALL the materials you wish to use over this period. The items will then be sent to you in one shipment arriving no later than June 30th. They are not due back until August 15th.

We encourage you to submit these requests early to ensure your materials arrive promptly. Please mark the date field as summer semester. All users are limited to a total of 15 (fifteen) items per summer session. Note that this is the limit for summer borrowing only. If you have any questions, please contact the LARC.

Teaching Cuban Culture & Society: A K-12 Summer Educator Institute in Cuba

View Full Event Description

The Stone Center for Latin American Studies and the Cuban and Caribbean Studies Institute at Tulane University are proud to announce a two-week summer educator institute exploring the geography, culture and history of Cuba. For an educator, Cuba is rich with lessons to bring into the classroom. This program highlights the important historical and cultural connections between the United States and Cuba. Participants will explore key sites and meet local experts and artists who will provide unique insight for educators who teach such subjects as U.S./Latin American Relations, World Geography, World History, and Spanish among others. Come and visit the site of the historic Bay of Pigs, explore Milton Hershey’s sugar plantation and hear firsthand about the Cuban national literacy campaign from the teachers themselves.
