Keiser University’s Latin American Library

The Henry H. Howard and Gertrude L. Bagley Library is open for students, faculty, staff, and visitors all year. During the academic year, it is open until 05:00 p.m. most evenings.

It has computer equipment for consultation, with access to the online catalog, academic databases of books, magazines, and articles that can be downloaded in full text.

The library’s collections have an approximate of 30,000 volumes, among which you can consult and/or borrow the General Collection, with topics corresponding to the careers taught at the University. One of them is the Latin American Collection (LAMA) of great value in topics of Latin American literature and history, with a representation of outstanding Latin American authors.

Among the collections that can only be consulted in the library are the National Diaries Collection (made up of three of the most representative newspapers of the last decades of the XX and XXI centuries), the magazine collection, rare books, and the reference collection.

Other services that you can get in the library are Wi-Fi, access to print or photocopy, and reserved study rooms. An external room with an independent entrance, suitable for holding special events for the university community and/or the public is also available.

Faced with the demand for updated information, we remain ready to respond and resolve the needs of our visitors daily. We adhere to institutional policies, the optimization of available technological resources, and we strive so that users without exception obtain an adequate response to their needs.

The university community and the general public represent the central axis of our daily work and we warmly welcome them on behalf of the library staff and invite them to learn about the services, online resources, the available collections and the comfort of our facilities.
