It’s all available online…until it’s not!
In mid-June news reports about Mexico’s National Council to Prevent Discrimination (Consejo Nacional para Prevenir la Discriminación or CONAPRED) hinted about the agency’s possible closure. Created in 2003, it has published numerous reports on gender discrimination, Indigenous rights, and LGBT issues in an effort to bring awareness to Mexican society on issues of social inclusion. The Stanford Libraries have a few publications I gathered over the years while attending the Guadalajara International Book Fair. Often the book fair stand for the agency carried only a display copy, and I was told that many more resources were available for downloading online…until they were not.
