The EWMC has been included in the UNESCO "Memory of the World" Register, which calls for the collection to be protected for the benefit of humanity.
From the start, the EWMC looked for opportunities to pro mote its mission and share its experience with other Caribbean library and archival collections, particularly in Jamaica, Barbados, and Puerto Rico, where there is interest in creating similar memorial collections that would combine "personal" exhibits of memorabilia, as well as scholarly centers of personal library collections and the archives of personal papers.
As with the EWMC, the development of similar programs and exhibitions in conjunction with UWI would also be a firm base for organizing academic programs in Jamaica and Barbados.
