encompassing more than 100 scholarly fields and subfields of the
humanities and social sciences. The majority of the works are in
Spanish, with a large number in Portuguese and French.  The
Assistant to the Editor briefs contributing editors on their
responsibilities and deadlines and assists with research for
their manuscripts; recommends addition or deletion of

Handbook contributors; assigns cataloging priorities for Hispanic
collections; selects and assigns serial articles to HLAS

annotations; create author and subject indexes; create
appropriate cross references; maintain and update databases and
manuals for the mainframe and personal computer; and extract data
from the HLAS database using offline retrieval programs.  The
Assistant prepares papers, oral presentations, and online
demonstrations of the HLAS database and delivers them at national
and international professional meetings and, with the Assistant
Editor, serves as LC's authority on HLAS/GenBib database and

Assistant participates in the production of the Handbook; final
