The Special Collections and Archives Division is celebrating American Archives Month by showcasing unique archival items that document Florida’s history in our Reading Room at Strozier Library. We’re also collaborating with other Florida archival repositories in creating an online exhibit comprising digitized materials from our collections and from others around the state.
American Archives Month is an opportunity to raise awareness among various audiences of the value of archives and archivists. These audiences may include students, scholars, policy makers, influential people within our communities, prospective donors, and the general public. It’s also a time to focus on the importance of records of enduring value and to enhance public recognition for the people and programs that are responsible for maintaining our communities’ vital historical records.
