The 'Spanish Borderlands Collections' draws from more than 2.5 million microfilm images of important colonial documents collected by the University of Florida's Department of Special and Area Studies Collections and the P.K. Yonge Library of Florida History in particular.
These collections are focused mainly on Spanish colonial territories in what is contemporary Florida and Cuba but also touch on Spanish colonial Mexico, Puerto Rico, and other U.S. Gulf coast states. Content covers a period of time ranging from the discovery of the new world, through Spanish cessession of Florida and Puerto Rico to the United States, and finally to the independence of Cuba.
The principle collections from which digital content is drawn are the East Florida Papers, the Joseph Byrne Lockey Collection, the John Batterson Stetson Collection, the Papeles de Cuba, and Spanish Colonial St. Augustine.
