The Duke University Libraries are contributing materials from their holdings to the Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC), including materials from:

  • The Haiti Sun newspaper, published 1950-1962 by Bernard Diederich, which served as a forum for dialogue among the English speaking community in Haiti. The Duke University Libraries acquired the most complete known collection of the paper in 2011 and, in partnership with the Digital Library of the Caribbean, began digitizing it in 2013. The collection should be completely digitized in 2014.
  • The Frank Espada Photographs Collection digital collection provides online access to a small portion (25 photographs) of Espada's larger The Puerto Rican Diaspora project, specifically focusing on rural migration in Hawaii and Pennsylvania, and urban migration in New York City and Hartford, Connecticut.
  • The Deena Stryker Photographs Collection, which consists of approximately 1850 photographs shot in Cuba between 1963 and 1964 by Deena Stryker and processed by Alberto Korda.
  • The Gary Monroe Collection is a collection of 98, 16x20 black and white gelatin silver prints shot by Gary Monroe from 1980 to 1998 in Haiti, in Haitian neighborhoods in Florida and at the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Processing Center at Krome Avenue in Miami, where Haitian refugees were detained.
  • The Caribbean Sea Migration Collection contains materials from the migration by sea of Cubans, Dominicans, and Haitians, including the refugee camp for Cuban and Haitian rafters that existed in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, largely dating from 1965-1996.
  • Additional Caribbean materials, as identified, from the Duke University Libraries Digital Collections.
