H-Borderlands is the H-Net home for global borderlands historians.  Originally a forum for scholars of the US-Mexico borderlands, it has grown to a wider community of researchers of continental and global border regions.  We welcome transnational historians and scholars in many different disciplines who study historical and contemporary borderlands and border issues.

Re: Hispanic Heritage Collections Across the Borderlands

This will be a wonderful resource when you complete it, Savanha. I have three suggestions: UTEP's Institute of Oral History has over 1,000 oral histories available. UTEP Library's Special Collections has a wide-ranging collection of borderlands collections. Claudia Rivers is its head. And finally, the El Paso Public Library has the Border Heritage Collection, which includes some great photographic collections.

Are you looking solely for collections on the U.S. side?

Best wishes.
