The Library has been awarded $14,000 by the U.S.-Mexico Fund for Culture for the

preparation of a finding aid to improve researcher access to the Durango Microfilm.

The microfilm of historical documents from the archives of the Archdiocese of

Durango, Mexico, is a valuable primary source of borderland history from the early

17th to early 20th centuries.  Austin Hoover, Director of the Rio Grande Historical

Collections, is the project director. Dennis Daily of the Archives staff was instrumental

in preparing the grant proposal.
