Environmental Collections

Florida Environmental Collections

Over the last several years, the USF Tampa Library has collected original materials documenting the environmental history of Florida and beyond. The Library’s Special Collections department invites professors and scholars to engage in research and data aggregation projects using its environmental materials.

archive Collections:

We invite all scholars to explore our collections and use these materials. In particular, we hope to encourage faculty who would be interested in initiating research projects to make these materials more accessible, including but not limited to:

  • Creating data sets and/or databases from the uncompiled research data contained in the collections
  • Using data to create maps and visual aids
  • Helping select materials for digitization and dissemination
  • Identifying incrementally sized research projects using the available materials

For More Information:

By contacting Special Collections, we are able to support research projects by making materials available, host instruction or research sessions for students, and act as liaison with other library/university units. The USF Institute for Environmental Studies, working in collaboration with Special Collections, can assist in facilitating research. We are eager to hear your interests and ideas as we continue to develop our collections.
