UWF Special Collections This database provides descriptions of collections and detailed inventories for the personal papers, manuscripts, archives, business records, and other research resources of the Special Collections Department, University of West Florida Libraries. Our research resources emphasize materials which cover the history, development, institutions, and people of the West Florida region from earliest settlement to the present, and holdings encompass over 700 individual collections and 1,000,000 items.

Individual collections are titled by the personal name or organization that created the materials (e.g. Marion T. Gaines Papers or the Wallace Bruce Family Papers or Sacred Heart Hospital Archives). The collection may include manuscripts, correspondence, subject files, photographs, maps, diaries, scrapbooks, audio/video materials, and other items, which are arranged into series and folders, with the contents of each folder described. These inventories and overall collection descriptions make up this database.

Research resources may be used in the Department during our normal hours which may be found on the Library Homepage and information can be obtained by contacting Dean DeBolt, University Librarian, at (850) 474-2213 or by e-mail at ddebolt@uwf.edu.
