FIU Students and Faculty Invited to tour Cuban Heritage Collection, March 11, 2003

On Tuesday, March 11th from 3:00 - 4:15, faculty and students are invited to tour the Cuban Heritage Collection housed at the University of Miami. This tour is open to all interested FIU faculty and students, so please join us.

This is a great opportunity to visit one of the premier Cuban and Cuban-American collections in the country. The Cuban Heritage Collection (CHC) preserves and provides access to an extensive collection of books, periodicals, and archival materials on Cuba and the Cuban exile experience.

The CHC includes approximately 40,000 rare and contemporary volumes published in Cuba and abroad related to Cuban culture and history. Works by Cuban exiles and Cuban-Americans are also featured in the collection. There are over 300 titles of newspapers, magazines, journals, and newsletters published in Cuba, representing approximately 25,000 issues, in the CHC.

This outreach event is sponsored by LACiC and UM's Richter Library.

Please call 305-348-2228 or email Catherine Marsicek for questions and directions. RSVP required.
