Major projects focused on Native American, African American, military, and Florida county-specific history.

Regulatory significance: The SPOHP has several collections related to regulation in the state of Florida, particularly as it has involved the environment and growth management.

Relevant projects:

Digital access: The SPOHP is in the midst of a digitization project, but currently, only a small percentage of the repository’s transcripts are available online.
