Recovering the US Hispanic Literary Heritage ("Recovery") is an international program to locate, preserve and disseminate Hispanic culture of the United States in its written form since colonial times until 1960. The program has compiled a comprehensive bibliography of books, pamphlets, manuscripts and ephemera produced by Latinos. The holdings available at the project include thousands of original books, manuscripts, archival items and ephemera, a microfilm collection of approximately 1,400 historical newspapers, hundreds of thousands of microfilmed and digitized items, a vast collection of photographs, an extensive authority list, and personal papers. In addition, the program has published or reprinted more than 40 historical books, two anthologies, and nine volumes of research articles. The program organizes a biennial international conference and has some five thousand affiliated scholars, librarians and archivists. Recovering the US Hispanic Literary Heritage is the premier center for research on Latino documentary history in the United States.
