Traveling Suitcases areare part of the Center for Latin American Studies's free lending library. They artifact collections reflecting daily life in specific countries and regions. Other suitcases represent other aspects of the culture such as music and traditional celebrations. These unique collections of books, toys, music, product packaging, currency, national symbols, and other items have been collected by UF faculty, students, and friends while traveling in Latin America. Many teachers use them as a learning center, letting students handle items and discuss their uses. They are popular for displays during international fairs and Hispanic Heritage Month, Sept. 15 - Oct. 15. The teacher's guide includes an annotated contents list, country information, maps, teaching guidelines, additional resource lists, sample lesson plans, and an evaluation form. Common to all suitcases are collections of national symbols, such as maps, flags and currency; artifacts from the agriculture, commercial and service sectors of the economy; handicrafts and newspapers. Items are packed in a sturdy plastic trunk.
All borrowers must have a current lending agreement on file with the Center for Latin American Studies Outreach Program. Once your agreement is on file, simply contact the Outreach Program (by phone, fax, or e-mail) with your request for materials from the database.
