The J. León Helguera Collection of Colombiana provides access to unique primary sources on 19th-century Colombian history and culture. The result of a half-century of collecting on three continents, the collection is one of the largest and most wide-ranging in the United States. Materials are grouped into three separate categories: broadsides, 1825-1972; pamphlets (including novenas), 1785-1969; and programas, 1819-1914. This initial pilot project includes a sampling from the above groups.

A related exhibit, Colombia in the 19th Century, also features pamphlets from this collection.
