October is American Archives Month

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013 | Posted in Collections, Faculty, News, Resources, Services, Students by Tomaro Taylor | No Comments »

“What’s an archive?” you say?  Visit the FMHI Research Library to find out.  You can also learn about our archival research collections by visiting: http://lib.usf.edu/fmhi/archives/historical-records-papers/.  (Additional collections are available at the USF Tampa Library Special Collections).

How can archives benefit your research?

  • Archives provide records of activity, which can be used to understand the functions, purpose,  interests, and goals of organizations and individuals.
  • Archival records can be current or non-current, which  allows researchers to better understand the context within which certain activities occur.
  • In addition to printed or textual  information, archives can include images, audio recordings and visual materials  – a wide-range of items that can support and complement your research from various angles.

What are some of the FMHI Library’s archival collections?
(If you don’t know what a finding aid is, click it to find out! Or, here’s a hint – a finding aid is a detailed description of a collection’s contents.)

  • Colleen Lunsford Bevis collection >> finding aid
  • Dr. Charles S. Mahan papers (currently, only select materials are available for research use)
  • Florida Commission on Mental Health and Substance Abuse papers  >> finding aid
