Library Special Collections Enrichment Fund is used to acquire materials for the Special Collections Department. Funds may be used to acquire collections, purchase materials for preservation needs, and to digitize collections for global access and research.
The Northeast Florida Literary Heritage Collection consists of first editions, manuscripts, papers, correspondence, autographs, and other materials from literary authors living in or writing about Northeast Florida. The collection also holds the work of emerging Northeast Florida poets, fiction writers, playwrights, and screen writers who are the literary voices of today and tomorrow. With digital as well as print texts, the collection makes the literary heritage of Northeast Florida available to researchers, scholars, and other interested readers from the region and beyond.
