The Cuban Heritage Collection welcomes the opportunity to work with faculty from the University of Miami and area colleges and universities to prepare instructional sessions for undergraduate and graduate classes. CHC Faculty can provide an introduction to the Collection and its resources; select and display materials pertinent to class syllabi; and help develop assignments and instruction sessions using materials from the Collection. To explore these possibilities, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Cuban Heritage Collection Reading Room is open for in-person research Monday – Friday by advance booking and seat reservation. Please see below for instructions on how to make an appointment and request materials.
