Special Collections

Special Collections supports scholarly research, enhances teaching, and preserves USF and Florida history through a series of deep University and community partnerships.

To advance this mission, Special Collections:

  • Collaborates with the Research Platform Teams in providing access to primary research materials appropriate to their missions.
  • Engages researchers and encourages immersion with nontraditional and often rare resources through classroom, exhibit, and storage facilities.
  • Establishes and promotes strong community partnerships organized around local and regional history, environmental history, and cultural resources and heritage.
