The Cuban Heritage Collection at the University of Miami Libraries collects, preserves, and provides access to primary and secondary sources of enduring historical, research, and artifactual value that relate to Cuba and the Cuban diaspora from colonial times to the present. The Collection supports the teaching, learning, and research needs of the University of Miami and the broader scholarly community. Since its inception in 1980, the collection has grown to become the most important and expansive body of resources on Cuba outside the island. The span of the University of Miami Libraries’ Cuban Heritage Collection reinforces the University’s commitment to a continuing relationship with its neighbors. Today, the Collection hosts researchers from around the world who are interested in Cuban history, the Cuban experience outside the island, and the impact of Cuban Americans in South Florida and beyond.
The Cuban Heritage Collection preserves its treasures and carries out its programs in the Roberto C. Goizueta Pavilion, named in honor of the late Cuban-American business leader.
