Special Collections include private personal and institutional manuscripts and paper collections that document the lives of Floridians or may be distinguished by their specialized subject matter, age, uniqueness, or value.
Rare Book Room Collection is administered as part of the Archives and Special Collections. The collection includes materials that, because of subject coverage, rarity, source, condition, form, or significant value are best handled separately from the general circulating collection.
