A great example of institution networking aimed at gathering and disseminating bibliographic information about scientific publications in a specific region – in this case, related to Latin America, the Caribbean, Spain and Portugal. This major portal also pursues the sharing of an ever-growing pool of (mostly) spanish-speaking scientific content with the International community at large. Making the best of online tools, the database is very well organized and easy to navigate. The main Directory includes almost 20,000 records, with more than 4,000 links to full-text electronic journals and a selected Catalogue providing descriptive information and additional content (over 3,300 items). Along with a simple search window in each page, users can easily browse several indexes organized by country (over 30 listed), alphabetical letter, subject and title. The social science section offers access to over 9,000 items, further indexed in many sub-sections, providing the needed data and metadata for each publication. Free of charge and with some English and Portuguese information, Latindex is updated daily and comprises about 20 different institutions.
