From the publisher about SUR:

"This edition includes images of the complete magazine, including covers, photographs and advertisements (50,000 pages); a comprehensive electronic index of 6,300 entries, which corrects mistakes and inconsistencies found in the index published in the magazine and provides access to all contributions, even those of less than a page. The collection allows users to search by author, title, genre, keyword and full-text with a user-friendly interface in Spanish or English. Additional material included in this online edition of SUR is a set of images of manuscripts from the first issue as well as an unpublished set of letters by Victoria Ocampo (1890–1979), the Argentine intellectual who founded SUR.

"Founded in 1931, SUR became a highly influential journal throughout Latin America and Europe. Over its long and distinguished history, SUR featured the writings of the leading figures in literature, philosophy, history and the plastic arts not only from Latin America, but also from North America and Western Europe. Contributors include LeCorbusier, Lacan, Sarte, and Woolf; Argentine authors include Borges, Cortázar, Silvinia Ocampo, and Bioy Casares. SUR translated many authors, introducing Latin Americans to Europeans, and European and North American readers to Latin Americans. Through her social commentary and choice of contributors, Ocampo advanced an Argentine version of Liberalism at a time when most Latin Americans confronted reactionary regimes, military rule, economic chaos and demagogues."
