How to Preview Materials

Standard Patron Policy

A preview period is built into your ordering process. You should receive materials a minimum of three days before your show date. If you need more than three days either request the item for a few days before you will show it through your show date (April 4-8 for example); or submit a request for the item for a date earlier in the semester and for your intended show date (Show date April 8th: Preview Request February 2nd). Summer is also a wonderful time to preview materials for the next school year.

Tulane/Loyola Patron Policy

Because of our convenient location on Tulane’s campus, Tulane/Loyola borrowers are allowed to preview 10 extra items per semester (up to three at a time) on the weekends in addition to the 10 items regularly allowed. Such requests will be available for pick up on Fridays after 12:00pm and must be returned the following Monday before 2:00pm. As always, this procedure is subject to availability and requires at least seven days advance notice to allow for processing. Please be sure to write preview next to these requests to ensure that they are not counted towards your regular 10 item limit.

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.
