A selection of significant records from the State Library and Archives of Florida are featured on the World Digital Library (WDL). Its mission is to make available on the Internet, free of charge and in multilingual format, significant primary materials from countries and cultures around the world. The content is in a variety of formats and languages, from different places and time periods, including manuscripts, maps, rare books, recordings, films, prints, photographs, architectural drawings, and other types of primary sources.
Twelve digital collections from the State Library and Archives are available on the Institute of Museum and Library Services' Opening History website. Opening History provides organized access to digital resources of value for research on United States history and culture. This initiative encourages sharing of digital resources in open access formats and promotes coordinated access to regional, state, and local collections to support the creation of a digital cultural heritage aggregation of national scope.
The Florida Department of State's Division of Library and Information Services is a member of the Library of Congress's National Digital Stewardship Alliance initiative. The National Digital Stewardship Allianceis a collaborative effort among government agencies, educational institutions, nonprofit organizations and businesses to preserve digital collections for the benefit of citizens now and in the future. Goals include developing improved preservation standards and practices; working with experts to identify categories of digital information that are most worthy of preservation; and taking steps to incorporate content into a national collection.
