About US Government Documents about Cuba

The US Government Documents about Cuba Collection is comprised of publications by the US government on the subject of Cuba.  Materials will include treaties, agricultural research reports, maps and any other content discovered which documents the relationship of the United States Government with the nation of Cuba.

In 2017, UF agreed to serve as a Center of Excellence (COE) for the Collaborative Federal Depository Program (CFDP) managed by the Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL). As the COE for Cuba, UF will catalog, preserve and make available both print and digital collections of all available U.S. government documents relating to Cuba, regardless of the publishing agency.

This collection is part of the larger Collections of Excellence project by which, in partnership with the Asssociation of Southeastern Resarch Libraries (ASERL), the University of Florida seeks to provide workable solutions to address the increasing cost of managing, preserving, and providing access to large collections of Federal government publications through the creation of several comprehensive collections, known as "Centers of Excellence" (COE)*, of U.S. government information from each Federal government agency. Built upon the foundation of existing holdings at Federal Depository libraries, these collections will become more complete with assistance from both Regionals, libraries who collect government information comprehensively, and Selectives, libraries who collect government information selectively, in the ASERL states.
