Centro Library and Archives Digital Collections

The Centro Library and Archives is a treasured place where researchers, academics, teachers, students, genealogists, filmmakers, and the community at large find primary (historical documents) and secondary sources about the history and culture of the Puerto Rican diaspora. The Digital Collections provide access to photographs, documents, artifacts, art, maps, oral histories, moving image and audio clips, and other digitized or born digital material pertaining to stateside Puerto Ricans.

The Library and Archives reading room has also evolved into an art space where established, as well emerging artists, exhibit their most recent artworks and showcase selected documents for the enjoyment of our patrons and dissemination of our unique resources.
