These bibliographies were compiled to help librarians and their patrons locate the most usable histories of each of Florida's 67 counties. 

Materials are generally available through interlibrary loan from the circulating collection of the State Library.

Those only found in the non-circulating Florida Collection are marked with an asterisk (*). These must be used in the Dorothy Dodd Room of the State Library of Florida. 

Links within the bibliographies take you to information in our State Library catalog.
