Grant details:

Survey of Small Historical Societies, Libraries and Museums for Hispanic Materials and Their Management (Database/Archive/Digital Edition)
Title: Survey of Small Historical Societies, Libraries and Museums for Hispanic Materials and Their Management
Author: Recovering the US Hispanic Literary Heritage/Arte Publico Press-University of Houston
Abstract: Some 358 surveys were distributed (on excel list linked). Of these, 59 were completed and returned (See Excel list). This effort was followed up with phone and email contacts to 36 institutions. Of the final list of 36 organizations reporting fully, we invited 18 (See Excel list) to come to Houston for a full-day conference; of these 8 attended and participated in the conference (See Excel list). The final “Guide” that we published online and are promoting includes the full report of holdings of the institutions, the types of institutions and their needs; in these, there was a considerable amount of Hispanic archival materials identified, so as to justify the need for this project.

The information that can be found for institutions that fall under this category is: the direct web link, institution type, city, state, physical address, Latino materials, and collection themes. The second category includes those institutions that were researched throughout the process of the project but did not respond to the survey, distinguishable by orange nodes. For these institutions the map provides the website, type of institution, city, state, and physical address.
