Abstract:The purpose of this paper is to briefly examine the evolution of area studies in the university and link that evolution to the development of area studies library organizations. I will then look at a case study of multidisciplinary activity by examining three different cooperative programs in support of academic research of the Latin American area studies library organization, the Seminar on the Acquisition of Latin American Library Materials (SALALM). I will show that the ability of this organization to support cooperative projects is an important factor in the evolution of multidisciplinary library research in Latin American studies.
