Repository description (extant): Formally established as the campus library in 1968, the Nelson Poynter Memorial Library anchors scholarship and research at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg. From a handful of books in the director’s office and the Papers of Nelson Poynter, Special Collections and Archives (SCA) has grown dramatically over the last twenty-five years. Most of this growth has taken place since 1996, when the present library building opened with an expanded area for
SCA.

The collections fall under a number of distinct areas of provenance. Rare and unique items, as well as most monographs in Floridiana, reside in the General Collection. Manuscript, archival, and book collections may also appear in collections based in the fields of Humanities, Journalism and Media Studies, Local and Regional History, Marine Science and Ichthyology, Maritime Base History, Oral History of Modern America, and the USF St. Petersburg Archives (with subcollections in Faculty Papers and Faculty Publications). SCA operates under the parameters of a Collection Development and Management Policy that was approved in December 2005 and is available for public inspection.

Repository type: University Special Collection

Collections:

Civil Rights Movement in Florida Conference oral histories
Oral history of modern America collection
