Abstract/Description: The Everglades Digital Library (EDL) is a comprehensive portal to high-quality Internet resources relating to the south Florida environment. These resources include online texts, articles, reports, photographs, maps, datasets, educational materials, and historical records, as well as links to organizational web sites and agency home pages. Everglades Digital Library - Reclaiming the Everglades is a collaborative digital library project of the University of Miami, Florida International University, and the History Miami (formerly Historical Museum of Southern Florida) libraries and special collections. With a grant from the Library of Congress and generous technical support from the Florida Virtual Campus (FLVC), nearly 10,000 page images of primary source materials relating to south Florida environmental history are accessible here. This digitized documentary evidence spans the years 1884 to present and covers topics such as the establishment of the Everglades National Park, Native American land rights, agriculture, urban development, endangered species, invasive plants, and the role of women in the modern conservation movement. Reclaiming the Everglades documents the history of the Everglades and the south Florida environment from 1884-1934. The digitized items represent a rich diversity of unique or rare materials: personal correspondence, essays, typescripts, reports and memos; photographs, maps and postcards; and publications from individuals and the government. The collection is a collaboration between the libraries at the University of Miami, Florida International University, and the Historical Museum of Southern Florida. Reclaiming the Everglades is an LC/Ameritech award-winning collection, also available through the Library of Congress's American Memory.
