Universidad de las Américas Puebla (UDLAP)

Located in the municipality of San Andrés Cholula, Puebla, the Universidad de las Américas Puebla’s CIRIA (Centro Interactivo de Recursos de Información y Aprendizaje) is a technical partner developing some of the technology used within the Project as well operating the Biblioteca Franciscana.

CIRIA has formed a special collections area in which antique bibliographic materials (1518 onwards), as well as books that by their own special character and six personal archive collections (Porfirio Díaz, Miguel Covarrubias, Barlow, Pablo Herrera Carrillo, José Miguel Quintan), are housed. This room, in a space within the library is dedicated to the collection and conservation of rare, antique and archival materials. Its principal function is to satisfy the specialized information needs of its patrons; given the importance of these materials, it was decided to house them in a special area.
