University Of Houston (Houston, TX 77204-3067)
Nicolas Kanellos (Project Director: July 2019 to present)
Survey of Small Historical Societies, Libraries and Museums for Hispanic Materials and Their Management, Phase 2

The planning and development of an online directory of libraries, archives, and museums containing sources on Hispanic history and culture in the United States, from the colonial era through 1960, with a focus on small institutions in the South and Southeast.

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, Phase 2 will constitute an entirely free database accessible through the Recovering the US Hispanic Literary Heritage website of the University of Houston.
