Our library’s Cuban Poster Collection was developed over time by my former colleague Dr. Carlos Delgado who was our librarian for the Latin American Studies. These posters as a group are unique markers of the time and milieu that had created them. These posters highlight different aspects of societal changes within Socialist Cuba and give voice to the silent yet interesting narratives through the images that are displayed. In order to make this collection broadly available to various researchers and scholar who cannot physically visit our campus, our library made a decision to digitize them. There are 482 different items within this collection.
I am glad to report that this digitization has been completed. The California Digital Library is working on some issues with the display of thumbnails. However, I wanted to share this exciting project with you as we approach our holiday season!
