Latin American Network Information Center (LANIC)
Since 1992, LLILAS has been proud to be home to the premier Internet Portal for Latin America Studies, the Latin American Network Information Center, or LANIC. LANIC includes vast holdings of easily accessible digital resources for Latin American research, including more than 100,000 full-text content pages and 500,000 database records. The LANIC research guides include 42 country and 84 subject pages with links to more than 10,000 external sites, all individually selected, evaluated, and catalogued by LANIC staff. LANIC users have a choice of an English, Spanish, or Portuguese interface to these directory services.
The key to LANIC's continued success has been an ever-growing and faithful user base. The number of visits to LANIC's Internet-based information resources has grown consistently since we launched our first public server almost 20 years ago. Today, sites from around the world contain more than 110,000 links to content on LANIC.
Awards and recognitions achieved by LANIC over the years include: Forbes.com Best of the Web site for Latin American Markets; an Institute for Scientific Information (ISI/Thompson Scientific) Current Web Contents member; a Schoolzone Five Star Award; and a Latin Trade magazine Best of the Web in the portals/search engines category.
