The University of Miami Libraries' Cuban Heritage Collection is the home of the Lydia Cabrera Papers. Visitors unfamiliar with Cabrera will be enlightened by the digital collection of "correspondence, manuscripts, original drawings, field notes, interviews, photographs, illustrations, and paper laces." Those familiar with her documentation of Afro-Cuban culture and religion will surely learn some new information from this extensive collection. The "Lydia Cabrera Papers Finding Aid" link on the right hand side of the homepage will take visitors to this "work-in-progress" finding aid that contains Series I (correspondence) and Series II (personal papers). Back on the homepage, visitors can "search" or "browse" the collection. Once a document has been opened, users can "add document to favorites", "add page to favorites", or copy and paste the URL for future use.
