We have a sizeable spanish-language collection in our Main Library. This
year we will be concentrating on expanding the VHS and DVD collection
within the Spanish section. I currently purchase Spanish language
feature films through Baker and Taylor and we occasionally get some of the
more popular English language films with Spanish subtitles from B&T also.

The person responsible for the Spanish collection would like more
nonfiction films (instructional, health, etc.) that are in Spanish,
preferably with Latino actors. Does anyone have a good source for these?
Our bilingual librarians do go to the Guadalajara Book Fair every other
year, but they find only books, no media. By the way, our Spanish
speaking customers are primarily from Mexico.
