Hispanic Collections


The Hispanic Collections primarily consist of materials related to Arte Público Press and the archival collections they have amassed through their Recovering the U.S. Hispanic Literary Heritage project. The press is the largest and longest-lasting Latino publishing house in the United States and a winner of numerous awards, including recognitions from the White House and the National Endowment for the Arts. The Hispanic Collections also contain a Mexico Documents Collection with manuscript materials dating from 1570-1898.

Given the high cost of acquiring, processing, collecting and protecting these invaluable resources, Special Collections depends on the endowments and monetary gifts of our donors to make these resources available for research, study and exhibition. Please consider donating today.
