Digital Florida Historical Quarterly most used Florida Heritage resource

Updated on: Feb 17, 2005 @ 1:04:00 pm

According to recent statistics from the Florida Center for Library Automation, the Florida Historical Quarterly has been used more than the rest of the Florida Heritage Collection ( ) combined! The Florida Historical Quarterly was contributed by the Florida Historical Society to UCF Libraries for digitization and submission to the Florida Heritage collection.
The Quarterly was first published in April 1908. For 2 years, starting in 1999, the UCF Libraries digitized and processed the 30,800 images representing the entire run of the publication. Lee Dotson, Digital Services, reviewed each OCR'd (Optical Character Recognition) image for accuracy (yes, every single one!) and Raynette Kibbee, Library Administration, also lent a hand reviewing images.
