Parallel Histories: Spain, the United States, and the American Frontier is a bilingual, multi-format English-Spanish digital library site that explores the interactions between Spain and the United States in America from the fifteenth to the early nineteenth centuries. A cooperative effort between the National Library of Spain, the Biblioteca Colombina y Capitular of Seville and the Library of Congress, the project is part of the Library of Congress Global Gateway initiative to build digital library partnerships with national libraries around the world. Through the presentation in digital form of books, maps, prints and photographs, manuscripts, and other documents from the collections of the partner libraries, this project illuminates five main themes related to the history of Spain and the parallel histories between the United States and Spain: Exploration and Early Settlement, Colonization and Settlement, Meeting of Cultures and Religious/Evangelical Activities, American Revolution, and Mutual Perceptions. Exploration and Early Settlement was launched in June 2005; the other sections are in process.The Historias Paralelas project explores the comparative history of Spanish expansion into North America from Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas across the continent through Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, and California all the way to Alaska, as well as the American expansion westward and the meeting of their frontiers.
The site features maps, rare books, manuscripts, prints and photographs, and motion pictures from the Library of Congress. These selected items relate to Spanish influence and interaction with other cultures existing in the geographic areas of North America, the Caribbean, and present-day Mexico between 1492-1898. Bilingual, English/Spanish access is provided throughout the site whenever possible. An interface with search and browse by Subjects, Titles, Geographic Locations features, supports navigation to 118 maps, two rare books, and one book from the United States Congressional Serial Set. In addition, links are offered to eight relevant American Memory collections and three Exhibitions from the Library of Congress. The American Memory format emphasizes direct access to primary source materials via specialized search and browse list tools for each collection. The Exhibitions format features a blend of historical context and images of historical treasures which have been displayed at the Library of Congress.
