Abstract

Voices from Florida, a monthly program hosted and curated by the Special Collections division of the Miami-Dade Public Library System, focuses on highlighting unique stories about Florida's history, culture, literature, and communities. Critical to this message is the preservation and long-term care of historical and culturally significant materials within the library's collections. The program also serves to advocate for the available resources for library patrons, which include archives, books, databases, and more. This series of programs began in May of 2021 as virtual events presented by Special Collections staff and has since grown to in-person lecture events with noted scholars and local community members. We focus on giving the spotlight to community historians, researchers, and advocates to tell their stories in their voices and provide outside assistance when further research is needed. This mutually beneficial project ensures the presenters can enhance their presentations with additional primary sources and highlight the Special Collections department's unique materials and staff expertise.
