USU Digital Library

Cache Valley, Utah is home to a rich and varied Latino population whose voice is often underrepresented in local repositories. To rectify this, in the summer/fall 2007 Utah State University's Special Collections and Archives collected the voices of 45 local Latino/a residents which are now presented in this digital collection.
