The UF Historic Preservation Studies Collection within the Institutional Repository at the University of Florida will include approximately 1,000 notebooks documenting the work of faculty and students engaged in historic preservation programs at UF over a twenty year period (1966-1986). Many of them are capstone projects from field schools or theses written in partial fulfillment of a master’s degree in architecture. The documents contain many valuable photographs, slides, architectural surveys, drawings and text concerning historic landmarks and sites throughout the United States, but mostly concentrated in Florida and Nantucket Island, Massachusetts.

In addition to enhancing the UF Libraries' strong architecture and architectural history collections, these materials will serve as a cornerstone in supporting the research needs of UF's graduate program in Historic Preservation Studies, which was established in 2008.

Authors of the historic preservation documents can assist by sending a completed permissions form to the University of Florida Libraries granting the University of Florida Internet Distribution Permissions. The permissions form and mailing address are available here.
