What do we mean by "Luso-Hispanic? The term "Luso-Hispanic" (derived from the Latin names for both entities of the Iberian Peninsula, i.e., Portugal was Lusitania and Spain was Hispania) encompasses Latin America, the Caribbean, Hispanics and Portuguese in the United States, the Iberian Peninsula, and other places where Iberian culture dominated and has survived. The Hispanic Division participates in the Library of Congress' ongoing exhibition program and contributes to its digitized collections.

Exhibits and Pictorial Collections

Although Luso-Hispanic items form part of the collections in American Memory, the bulk of such material will be found in the Prints and Photographs Reading Room through manual searches. If you cannot come to the Library, free-lance researchers may be able to search materials for a fee. A list of free-lance researchers may be obtained from the Main Reading Room of the Library of Congress.
