Hispanic History, Anthropology and More Databases on Trial
Arte Público Hispanic Historical Collection: Series 1 – This digital collection of historical content pertaining to U.S. Hispanic history, literature and culture comes from the Recovering the U.S. Hispanic Literary Heritage Project.

Created under the direction of Dr. Nicolás Kanellos, founder and director of Arte Público Press, the oldest and largest publisher of U.S. Hispanic literature in the U.S., the collection accurately conveys the creative life of U.S. Hispanics, and sheds new light on the intellectual vigor and traditional values that have characterized Hispanics from the earliest moments of this country's history through contemporary times.
