(AP) Columbia University has entered a partnership with New York City's Spanish-language newspaper El Diario/La Prensa to house its photographic archive.

The school says the 5,000 images will be housed in the Rare Book and Manuscript Library. They'll be part of the Latino Arts and Activism Collection.

The archive documents the lives, contributions and culture of Latinos in New York City.

El Diario is the oldest continuously publishing Spanish-language daily newspaper in the country.

Columbia and the newspaper plan four exhibitions around the city as part of the paper's centennial celebration this year.

Each venue will feature a selection of photographic reproductions, newspaper articles and front pages. They'll be thematically arranged to highlight the city's Latino social, cultural, economic and political growth.
