Florida libraries have long been go-to places for finding information. In an increasingly technological world, library websites can refer patrons to services they need. Whether linking to offerings provided by the library, the government or other organizations, lists of available resources are valuable assets both for patrons and for the library staff assisting them. 

Florida Libraries as Information Portals delves deep into getting the most out of helpful resources, such as:

  • Databases
  • Digitized collections
  • Catalogs
  • Service directories
  • Statistical data 

 Digital preservation is a growing trend in libraries, driving new discussion on:

  • Creation and management of digital materials
  • Best practices for maintaining digital resources
  • Combining and expanding Florida’s digital collections
