The Catálogo Colectivo de Impresos Latinoamericanos hasta 1851 (CCILA) is an ongoing effort to catalog the printed heritage of Latin America and the Philippines before 1851. As a bibliography, it provides a census of surviving works. As a union catalog, CCILA will list institutional holdings for those works and will endeavor to identify microfilm and digital surrogates. It is a large-scale cooperative effort, designed to involve every library in Europe, the Americas, or the Philippines possessing relevant materials.

Phase One of CCILA is complete. The current file was created by keying and importing select important printed bibliographies and library catalogs. The initial file includes approximately 60,000 entries and holdings from nearly 500 libraries.

Phase Two, when funded, will expand the base file by matching to it records contributed from library online catalogs throughout the world and entries from keyed minor printed bibliographies.

Concurrently with Phases One and Two, the Director of CBSR has also undertaken a series of visits to libraries to solicit the widest possible representation and participation. To date he has visited libraries throughout Latin America as well as North America and Europe.
