Description:
This interactive webinar focuses on using Florida Memory to find primary source materials for Florida History Fair and for teaching Florida history. Florida Memory is a web initiative by the Florida Department of State’s Division of Library and Information Services. Florida Memory provides online access to significant materials from the collections of the State Library and Archives of Florida, including over 170,000 photographs, 90 full-length films, 1,500 audio recordings and thousands of original documents.

This webinar highlights resources for the Florida History Fair as a jumping off point for exploring the wealth of primary source materials on Florida Memory. Additionally, we will provide an overview of the components and features of the Florida Memory website and suggest ways teachers can use these materials in the classroom.

Special Guest: KC Smith, Florida History Fair Coordinator and Curator of Education, Museum of Florida History
