With over 80,000 Cuban population, the University of Tampa’s Macdonald-Kelce Library is the perfect home for the Vanishing Cuba book.

Though Cubans have not shaped Tampa quite like Miami, the Gulf Coast city’s ties to that country go back further. The neighborhood of Ybor City was founded in the 1880s by a cigar manufacturer, and thousands of Cubans migrated there to work for the operation. 

Macdonald-Kelce Library Mission

The Macdonald-Kelce Library is the university’s information access center, primarily aiming to support instruction, research, and service learning. University community members use library resources, print and electronic, to meet their various informational needs. As a Federal Depository, the library is also open to the public seeking government information (by appointment). Librarians and library staff are committed to providing a comfortable environment, delivering service that promotes lifelong learning goals, and making scholarly content generated by UT more open, accessible, and durable.
