In contrast to institutional collaborations based on membership and subscription fees, the Digital Library of the Caribbean (DLOC) is an open-access, cooperative project of universities and archives in the United States, South America, and the Caribbean. The DLOC is conceived as a means of grappling with obstacles to preservation posed by the region’s colonial history, including linguistic diversity and the dispersion of documents, often in the metropolis. Using open-source software developed by the University of Florida rather than a proprietary platform, the DLOC uses a collaborative funding model based on grants and in-kind contributions from [End Page 127] member institutions. Resources of interest to the film scholar include the Efraín Barradas Collection, which contains more than 350 Mexican and Cuban film posters, and the Caribbean Digital Newspaper Library. This collection covers publications from the nineteenth century to the present, but extensive runs are few. Two newspapers with comparatively broad chronological coverage are El diario de la marina (1899–1909, 1955–1960) and El mundo (San Juan, Puerto Rico, 1928–1939).
