This issue of the ASFA magazine is focused on the efforts of ASFA regional network in Latin America. There are nine ASFA partners in Latin America and four associates, each of whom contributes to the ASFA partnership by providing records on OpenASFA or participating in one of ASFA’s working groups. ASFA is very thankful to the efforts of Gabi Silvoni (INIDEP) and Silvina Perez Marino (University of Uruguay) for their efforts not only to the ASFA thesaurus and database, but also for acting as ambassadors for ASFA and helping to spread the word of the partnership. This issue of the ASFA Magazine also presents an update from the IAMSLIC conference and abstracts of papers presented by two new associates who recently joined ASFA, Universidad Nacional del Comahue, General Roca, Argentina and Centro de Investigaciones Marinas, Cuba. As ASFA is in the final stages of finalizing its new partnership agreement, we hope to build on the new connections and continue to expand the ASFA partnership in Latin America.
