The Spanish Colonial Research Center (SCRC) was established in 1986 by the National Park Service, but currently it resides at the University of New Mexico. The Center facilitates the study of colonial Luso-Hispano history in cooperation with research organizations in Spain, Portugal, Mexico and other Latin American countries.
This digital collection is a selection of colonial documents and maps from Spanish and Mexican archives that have been documented by the SCRC. It is intended to be an essential source of information for those interested in Spanish Colonial history in North America.
Descriptive information for each document was taken from a calendared index developed at the Center. Each document has been assigned a "SCRC ID Number" that serves as a unique identifier. Information about the source archive of each document is also provided. For additional information about the collection see the print version of the calendared index:
