TRIBUTES TO AUTHOR RUDOLFO ANAYA AND LINKS TO HIS ARCHIVES AT THE UNM CENTER FOR SOUTHWEST RESEARCH https://anaya.unm.edu
Because of Rudolfo Anaya’s literary and cultural significance to New Mexico and to honor his legacy, UNM Libraries’ Department of Digital Initiative and Scholarly Resources (DISC) created the Rudolfo Anaya Digital Archive, a comprehensive online guide to his life and work. Oral histories, draft manuscripts, book covers, and an extensive bibliography of Anaya resources are available in the online archive. CSWR staff, and indeed, the entire UNM Libraries community is deeply saddened by Mr. Anaya’s death, one of New Mexico’s great writers and cultural icons. While his passing is a great loss, by placing his papers with CSWR he left an incredible gift to New Mexico. His work will be treasured and preserved in perpetuity in the Center for Southwest Research and Special Collections for future generations to enjoy. For detailed descriptions of the material in the Rudolfo A. Anaya Papers please see the CSWR finding aid at https://rmoa.unm.edu/docvi
