Digital Collections

Civil War

Civil War

The Civil War digital collection hosts materials made available to the Civil War in the American South. In recognition of the sesquicentennial of the start of the American Civil War, Civil War in the American South provides a central portal to access digital collections from the Civil War Era (1850-1865) held by members of the Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL).

ASERL members hold deep and extensive collections documenting the history and culture of the American South, developed over hundreds of years to support scholarly research and teaching. Many of the special or unique manuscripts, photographs, books, newspapers, broadsides, and other materials have been digitized to provide broader access to these documents for scholars and students around the world. Civil War in the American South is a collaborative initiative to provide a single, shared point of access to the Civil War digital collections held at many individual libraries.

Digital Library of the Caribbean

Digital Library of the Caribbean

The Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC) is a cooperative digital library for resources from and about the Caribbean and circum-Caribbean. dLOC provides access to digitized versions of Caribbean cultural, historical and research materials currently held in archives, libraries, and private collections.

The University of Central Florida (UCF) Libraries contributes materials to the Digital Library of the Caribbean from our Special Collections. Many of the materials are from the William J. Bryant West Indies Collection including ephemera, audio, artifacts, slides, and artwork exhibit.

UCF Community Veterans History Project

UCF Community Veterans History Project

As part of RICHES of Central Florida, UCF intends to record, archive, and make accessible oral history interviews of Central Florida veterans. Diversity is a main focus for this project since there are many different subgroups under the group veterans, all with important stories. While the histories will be largely archived and made available through the UCF library, a portion will be contributed to the ongoing Veterans History Project based out of the Library of Congress.

Central Florida Memory

Harrison Price Papers

This digital collection contains selected materials from the Harrison Buzz Price Papers. The reports in digital format are a small percentage of the collection, selected for their research use by the faculty of the Rosen College of Hospitality Management. The entire collection of the Harrison Price Papers contains hundreds of research reports, proposals, speeches, and collected research materials on a variety of projects he conducted between 1955 and 2003. Some materials are restricted due to the donors wishes, but researchers may petition the donor through Special Collections Staff for access.

Central Florida Memory

Central Florida Memory

Central Florida Memory is a unique digital collection of material contributed by the University of Central Florida Libraries, the Orange County Regional History Center, the Orange County Library System, the Museum of Seminole County History and the Olin Library at Rollins College to create a virtual place where visitors can discover what Central Florida was like before theme parks and the space program. Diaries and letters describe the region and how people survived day-by-day in this extreme and rugged environment. Maps, photographs, and postcards illustrate how the region looked in the early years and how it changed over time. Voters’ registration and funeral records and city directories provide demographic information that makes the picture of the Central Florida settler come into focus.

University Photograph Collection

Collection contains photographs that were taken for use as publicity material for the University of Central Florida. The images document all aspects of university life including annual events such as commencement and homecoming, special events, portraits of faculty, students, alumni, and visitors to the university including speakers, performers and government officials. Buildings on both the main campus and regional campuses are shown during construction and after completion. Instructors are shown teaching and researching and students are shown studying in laboratories and classrooms. A guide to the physical collection is available at University Photographs, 1965-2006.
