[BKARTS] More Florida, continued

I'm coming in late in the conversation, because that's how I am, but Tammy Powley a few weeks ago wrote the list looking for resources that delved into things like old scrapbooks and Florida history, and I know a lot of great local suggestions were posted by folks like James Tapley, Doug Sanders, and others. There's also the online Florida Heritage Project, Tammy. It's a statewide digital library created jointly by all of Florida's state universities, including Florida Atlantic University, where I am writing from. I had four hits come up when I typed in "scrapbook" using a keyword search.

Here's the site:


It's a great resource available no matter where you are... even Port Saint Lucie <wink>. But also do try any of the Special Collections libraries at the universities.... most every one probably has a Floridiana Collection. The idea behind the Florida Heritage Project, though, is especially to get these rare materials reproduced digitally so that they are more accessible to users. A good number of our rare Floridiana pieces housed here at FAU Special Collections are already posted there at FHP, and each year, depending on funding, more are added.
