Official Papers of Dr. Hector P. Garcia Going Digital for Ease of Access


CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – The papers of Dr. Hector P. Garcia, Corpus Christi physician and champion of Mexican American civil rights, will soon be easier to view from around the world as part of a processing and digitization project planned by Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. The project will do more than just put the documents online, although that is a huge benefit. It will make the collection more accessible to a wider audience, preserve it for long-term viability and advance the awareness of this unique collection, said Library Director Dr. Catherine Rudowsky. A contract for the work is expected to be signed this week. The project, which is expected to take one year, is slated to begin this spring with an online exhibit ready in time for the annual celebration of Garcia in September.
