Survey of Hispanic Materials in Small Historical Societies, Libraries, and Museums

A planning project, conducted by the Recovering the US Hispanic Literary Heritage program, to survey small libraries, archives, museums, and historical societies in several states in the Southwest that house documentation on Hispanic/Latino history and culture, resulting in an online directory and printed publication of a guide to these collections.

The University of Houston seeks support for a Foundations-level project to identify and develop institution-level descriptions for small cultural heritage repositories in order to assess their Hispanic/Latino holdings and the conditions in which they are held, and to inform the interested community of the existence of these holdings. The proposed survey will be the basis for creating a guide to these materials and will represent a first step in making them accessible as well as improving the conditions in which they are held. The Survey of Small Historical Societies, Libraries and Museums for Hispanic Materials and Their Management will constitute an entirely free database accessible through the "Hispanic Collections" website of Special Collections and the Arte Publico Press website, both of the University of Houston.
