The Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC) is a cooperative digital library for resources from and about the Caribbean and cirum-Caribbean currently available in their original language. dLOC provides access* to digitized versions of Caribbean cultural, historical and research materials currently held in archives, libraries, and private collections for scholars, students and citizens online via the website www.dloc.com which is accessible in English, French and Spanish.
The technical team supports the dLOC toolkit which was created to facilitate the submission of resources and then processes the resources to provide full text search capability and zoomable images as well as long term digital preservation in the state-ofthe-art Florida Digital Archive.
Current collections include newspapers, photographs, archives of Caribbean leaders and governments, official historical documents, and historic and contemporary maps. Future collections will feature numeric data for local ecosystems, oral and popular histories, travel accounts, literature, and musical expressions.
