Florida Historical Documents
Our Florida Documents are in 3 different call number systems. The earliest documents were originally classed in the Dewey Decimal System, then later into the Library of Congress call number system. The most recent system is a made up system called, Fla-Doc where the books are classed by the agency that produced them. For some serials, we tended to keep them in the Dewey numbers as we acquired later years and that is why many of our historical documents are in the Florida documents Dewey call numbers. You could also locate material by browsing the shelf around the call numbers that are displayed below, because many of the documents are not in the online catalog. One example of this is the Florida Health Notes found in Dewey 610.5 F636. Below are some examples of the rich collection we have. All of these books are on the ground floor of Strozier Library in the Florida section of the Documents collection.
