In 2002, the Newark Public Library partnered with a Latino community group called Friends of HRIC to create the New Jersey Hispanic Research and Information Center (NJHRIC).

The NJHRIC addresses the informational needs of the state's diverse Hispanic communities, from the newly arrived monolingual immigrant to the English dominant researcher. It has three components:

Sala Hispanoamericana home to the largest collection of Spanish–language library resources in New Jersey. Originally established in 1989, La Sala serves as a valuable educational, informational and cultural resource for Latino immigrants.

Hispanic Reference Collection an English and Spanish language research level collection aimed at the special needs of students and scholars, enabling them to conduct in–depth research into New Jersey's diverse Hispanic community.
