This collection offers a unique approach, focusing exclusively on the Latino-Hispanic history in the U.S. This collection includes: hundreds of rare books by Latino-Hispanic Americans; over 3,000 issues of rare historical newspapers and periodicals, including over 75,000 pages of content; and over 250,000 pages of personal and organizational manuscript content.
Both Series 1 and Series 2 collections include content written in Spanish (80%) and English (20%), indexed and searchable in Spanish and English. The collections draw their content from the “Recovering the U.S. Hispanic Literary Heritage Project,” the largest national project ever to locate, preserve, and disseminate Latino-Hispanic culture of the U.S. in its written form, from colonial times to 1960. The project functions under the direction of Dr. Nicolás Kanellos, founder and director of Arte Público Press, the oldest and largest publisher of U.S. Latino-Hispanic literature, and includes publications from all regions of the nation.
