Five Questions with Francisco Macías, Senior Legal Information Analyst, Law Library of Congress

I love the Library’s collections of prints and photographs. I also love the “Selected Library of Congress Sources for Texas!” However, I would like to share some analog primary sources that we have digitally preserved: the bilingual gazettes (1863), Spanish and French, of the Second Mexican Empire.

Celebrating Mexico with Primary Sources from the Library of Congress

The first printing press in the New World…The only existing copy of a documentary on the Mexican Revolution…A legal argument that used drawings of turkeys–and that won its case. These are just a few of the rich cultural artifacts featured in “A Celebration of Mexico,” a conference and display December 12-13 at the Library of Congress.
