Guide to Documenting Latino/Hispanic History & Culture in New York State
This guide identifies some of the most critical priorities that must be addressed to ensure a more complete and balanced documentation of Latino communities in New York, and it offers a method for determining whether potential topics should be considered statewide priorities for documentation. Some of the responsibilities for accomplishing this plan fall to the New York State Archives. Many, however, are the responsibility of others. These include statewide and regional archives, historical societies, museums, and libraries whose missions and service areas currently encompass Hispanic populations and organizations engaged in Latino communities. They also include organizations that create records themselves in the process of their work in Latino communities.
We encourage you to become involved in this effort to redress a serious gap in New York's historical record. The need is great, the benefits are substantial, and the issues are compelling.
We welcome your comments, suggestions, or proposals for how to accomplish the goals in this plan. For further information on how you can assist in this effort, please contact:
