This interactive webinar introduces users to the Florida Memory website. Florida Memory is a Web initiative by the Florida Department of State, Division of Library and Information Services. The presentation is geared towards helping users find resources for and about their local communities. We will discuss the different components of Florida Memory (Photographs, Video, Audio, Collections, Exhibits and Online Classroom) and provide an overview of using the resources.
Additionally, in commemoration of Black History Month, we will review resources on African-American history and culture including: an exhibit on Zora Neale Hurston, video of the St. Augustine Race Riots of the 1960s, interviews with Civil Rights activists and African-American musical traditions.
