A Message from the Chair

Watch a short message from Amigos Chair Aldo Leiva

The Amigos of the Cuban Heritage Collection at the University of Miami Libraries are a group of volunteers who came together in 1995 to support the work of the great staff of the Cuban Heritage Collection. We have helped identify donations of materials, fund acquisitions, digitize resources, and fund fellowships for students conducting research in the Collection. As Chair of the Board of Directors of the Amigos , I invite to you renew your membership or join today.

Wishing you a happy holiday season,

Aldo Leiva, Esq. Chair
