March 23, 2011The University Of Florida Digital Collection Is A Goldmine
I love trolling through hours of mid-century goodness. It is even better when all the goodness is FREE!
Oh wait. Did I say hours? I don’t mean hours. I only mean on my brakes from writing. Twenty, thirty minutes tops. I swear. *cough*
Anyway, check out the University of Florida’s Digital Collections, which is packed full with DAYS of research material that you can access right from your computer!
Things like this:
Author Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings on "The Yearling" movie set with Cal Long
From a 1963 newspaper from the Florida Newspaper Archive
They also have an entire Oral History Collection, which is fascinating
and a ton of fun to go through.
So, go on and enjoy yourselves! I am sure you will be able to find enough stuff to keep you busy for hours.
I mean…only on your breaks. Twenty to thirty minutes, tops.
