Today we launch the Florida Memory blog in the spirit of our mandate to make resources from the State Library and Archives of Florida available to the public.
We will highlight interesting photos, incoming collections, documents, events in Florida history, and also discuss issues that arise from preserving and ensuring access to such exciting materials. Our sound archivist will stop by to give behind-the-scenes accounts of the preservation and digitization of audio recordings. Perhaps he will share the story of saving deteriorating open reel tapes with a food dehydrator.
We hope you will join us in promoting the study of Florida’s rich history and culture.
