Archival Resources in Support of National Hispanic Heritage Month

Each September 15th- October 15th, the nation pays tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who have enriched our country and society.

In addition to our current book and journal holdings on Latino Studies topics as well as unique archives housed in Special Collections and Archives, DePaul Library subscribes to two large database series filled with archival material chronicling the lives, experiences, and intellectual output of Latinos from colonial times to 1960.

Cultura ProletariaVisit the  Latino-Hispanic American Experience: The Arte Publico Hispanic Historical Collection and The Latino-Hispanic American Experience: Leaders, Writers, and Thinkers databases to discover the many rare books, historical newspapers, periodical articles, personal and organizational manuscripts, pamphlets, and broadsides digitized as part of the Recovering the U.S. Hispanic Literary Heritage Project.

DePaul researchers might also find rich resources on Hispanic-American history through the Library’s membership with the Center for Research Libraries (CRL). CRL is a cooperative of research libraries dedicated to collecting, preserving, and providing access to primary sources from around the world and a guide to major Latin American Studies holdings can be found here as well as the ability to search CRL’s extensive catalog.  See Borrowing from CRL for more information on how members borrow items from the cooperative to use for their research projects, teaching, and learning.
