Unearthing St. Augustine's Colonial Heritage:
An Interactive Digital Collection for the Nation's Oldest City

Abstract

In preparation for St. Augustine's 450th anniversary of its founding in 2015, the University of
Florida (UF) Libraries requests $341,025 from the National Endowment for the Humanities to
build an online collection of key resources related to colonial St. Augustine, Florida. Along with
the UF Libraries, the Unearthing St. Augustine project partners are the St. Augustine
Department of Heritaqe Tourism and historic Government House, the St. Augustine Historical
Society, and the City of St. Augustine Archaeology Program. This two-year project will have two
major outcomes: 1) UF and its partners will create and disseminate an interactive digital
collection consisting of 11,000 maps, drawings, photographs and documents and associated
metadata that will be available freely online, and 2) project staff will create original programming
for a user-friendly, map-based interface, and release it as open-source technology. In addition
to providing digital access to numerous rare and desirable resources, the primary goal is to
create a flexible, interactive environment in which users will be comfortable using and
manipulating objects according to different research needs. Along with searching and browsing
functions-including full text searching-the project will develop a map-based interface built
upon geographic metadata. Users will be able to search for textual information, structural
elements and geographic locations on maps and images. This model will encourage users to
contribute geospatial metadata and participate in the georectification of maps. For the first time,
this project brings the study of St. Augustine's past into the modern research environment.

An Advisory Board comprised of archaeologists, historic preservationists, and historians who
have expertise in the colonial history of St. Augustine and Florida will provide evaluation and
expert guidance on building the digital collection and designing the user interface.

The Unearthing St. Augustine collection will cover a broad range of subjects including Florida
and U.S. history, Spanish colonies, Native Americans, slavery, exploration, architecture and
urban planning, social and economic development, missionary work, military defenses and
warfare. The collection will satisfy the needs of a diverse audience including historians,
archaeologists, architects, urban planners, historic preservationists, geographers,
cartographers, ecologists, sociologists, and genealogists, among many others. The 11,000
digital objects, which date from the 16th century to the present, are in the public domain or
owned by partner repositories which have reproduction rights. Selected materials will include:
* Government House 1,200 maps and overlays of the city, architectural drawings of historic
structures, and related government documents.
* St. Augustine Historical Society 2,500 Spanish documents, transcriptions and English
language translations.
* St. Augustine Archaeology Program records, photographs and site summaries for 100
excavations conducted over the past 20 years.
* Herschel Shepard Collection at UF 800 drawings, photos and documents related to
architect Shepard's restoration and reconstruction of the city's colonial buildings.

Unearthing St. Augustine will be promoted broadly to local, national and international scholars,
teachers and the general public. To increase discovery and access, UF will contribute objects
and metadata to digital repositories, social networking sites, library catalogs, and other
aggregators.

Unearthing St. Augustine's Colonial Heritage:
An Interactive Digital Collection for the Nation's Oldest City

The University of Florida (UF) Libraries requests $341,025 from the National Endowment for the
Humanities to build an interactive online collection of key resources related to colonial St.
Augustine, Florida. Along with the UF Libraries, Unearthing St. Augustine partners are the St.
Augustine Department of Heritage Tourism and historic Government House, the St. Augustine
Historical Society, and the City of St. Augustine Archaeology Program. This two-year project
with have two major outcomes: 1) UF and its partners will create and disseminate an interactive
digital collection consisting of 11,000 maps, drawings, photographs, documents and associated
metadata that will be available freely online, and 2) project staff will create original programming
to develop a user-friendly, map-based interface for the collection, and release it as open-source
technology. The project will produce innovative ways for users to navigate rich and diverse
content visually, and will increase interactivity between researchers and primary sources.

I. Significance and Impact

Unearthing St. Augustine continues 40 years of commitment to scholarship by UF and its project
partners in colonial St. Augustine. Established in 1565, St. Augustine has long identified itself
under the rubric "the oldest city" because of its early founding date in American history and its
remarkable survival as a small community that has maintained its original colonial grid of streets
and blocks. Its story is one of diversity and a window into the lives of Native Americans,
colonists, slaves and free people of color as they adapted to a region constantly caught in the
military conflicts of expanding empires and national states. As such, St. Augustine has been a
research mecca for archaeologists, historians, and other scholars seeking to understand the
complex legacies of the Spanish borderlands and the American Southeast. For half a century,
the city has also been a focal point of work in historic preservation. As Florida moves towards its
500th anniversary (2013) and St. Augustine looks ahead to the celebration of the 450th
anniversary of its founding (2015), researchers need: 1) broader and easier access to primary
resources, regardless of holding repository; and 2) the ability to contribute to and manipulate
content. For the first time, this project brings the study of St. Augustine's past into the modern
research environment.

To meet contemporary research needs, this project will deliver these resources using
technology customized for use in history, archaeology, and historic preservation. Guided by an
Advisory Board of expert scholars and researchers, Unearthing St. Augustine will draw from
unique and rare materials that are both difficult to access and to manipulate in original form. The
project will focus on collections from the City of St. Augustine, the St. Augustine Historical
Society, and the UF Libraries that are basic resources to many types of research and that
currently are limited in their availability. With the exception of a few online resources, there is
currently no easy way to gain Web access to the plethora of information that exists in these
repositories. Unearthing St. Augustine will enable project partners to add content to their
existing web sites and also contribute to a collective project site. It will open online access to
cartographic materials of Government House which have been semi-closed to researchers and
the public since 1997. It will make available, for the first time, an extensive overview of research
and results from the City Archaeology Program. Fulfilling the constant request of teachers and
beginning researchers for translated source material, it will provide electronic text of key
Spanish documents in English translation along with the original Spanish. In addition, it will
broadly expose the invaluable architectural records of Herschel Shepard, a leader in historic
preservation in Florida.

Unearthing St. Augustine's Colonial Heritage: An Interactive Digital Collection for the Nation's Oldest City

Selected materials (see Selection and Imaging Section, pg 7) will be drawn from four distinct
collections: 1) Department of Heritage Tourism (Government House) flat files of maps and
drawings, 2) St. Augustine Historical Society transcribed and translated texts, 3) City of St.
Augustine Archaeology Program records and photographs, and 4) architectural records from the
Herschel Shepard Collection at UF. From Government House, project staff will inventory and
digitize approximately 1,200 large format maps and overlays of the city, architectural drawings
of historic structures, and related government documents. This collection was developed by
archaeologists and historians during the long tenure of the state agency known originally as the
St. Augustine Historical Restoration and Preservation Commission (1959-1967) and
subsequently as the Historic St. Augustine Preservation Board (HSAPB) (1968-1997). The files
were originally collected to provide historical information to guide HSAPB administrators in the
purchase and development of the colonial properties. Since the closure of this state agency in
1997, and in the absence of a librarian or archivist, these resources have for many years been
closed to most researchers. As the majority of the Government House files are primary source
materials, digitization of these materials will bring universal access to thousands of pages of
data and images that heretofore have been accessible only to persons officially working in or
visiting the Government House. Researchers who are granted access by appointment are
confronted with vast amounts of oversized materials in some 37 flat file drawers, (see Appendix
F, Fig. 1) with little or no cataloging beyond 3x5 index cards, and minimal descriptions on
drawer labels. Many flat files that have been used over the years are located on tops of file
cabinets or rolled up and stuck in a corner, further frustrating researchers' quests for and access
to these materials (see Appendix F, Fig.2). The delicate nature of some of these materials due
to age or physical format (e.g., blueprints or original architectural drawings on vellum) also
makes the need for digitization critical.

From the St. Augustine Historical Society, the project will digitize 2,500 Spanish documents, as
well as English language translations. This will address frequent requests from K-12 teachers
and researchers working on colonial America for access to key documents in translation. The
translations, stored as typescripts, represent the work of Edward Lawson and other scholars in
the 1940s and 50s. Besides documents relevant to the founding and development of St.
Augustine, these files also include translations of: Spanish printed sources about Juan Ponce
de Leon and Pedro Menendez de Aviles; extensive selections in English translation of La
Florida: Su Conquista y Colonizaci6n (Madrid: Imp. de los hijos de J. A. Garcia, 1893); accounts
of Francis Drake's raid on St. Augustine in 1586; reports from the expeditions of Juan Pardo;
memorials by clergy on conditions in the Spanish missions; investigations into the governorship
of Diego de Rebolledo during the Timucuan revolt; reports on the 1702 siege of St. Augustine
by James Moore and the 1740 siege of James Oglethorpe; texts on town planning and royal
ordinances; documents pertaining to the building of the Castillo de San Marcos; and others
dealing with details of life in town at different times. These materials will be supplemented by an
additional 1,500 documents from the collections of the Historical Society and the P.K. Yonge
Library of Florida History, UF. Documents will cover the current interests of colonial period
researchers, such as recent translations of documents related to the free black community of
Gracia Real de Santa Teresa de Mose.

A third major contribution to the project comes from the City of St. Augustine Archaeology
Program. It focuses on materials from excavations conducted over the past 20 years by city
archaeologist, Carl Halbirt. Project staff will select and develop sets of documents and images
from 100 major excavations, documenting in-ground features, such as building foundations,
roads and bridges, defense lines, wells, trash dumps, animal burials, etc. Fifty of these sites
have been recommended by Halbirt (see Appendix H) and the remaining 50 will be selected in
consultation with the project advisory board from a field of more than 500 projects. Each of the

Unearthing St. Augustine's Colonial Heritage: An Interactive Digital Collection for the Nation's Oldest City

100 selected sites will be represented online by a summary of its history and documented by
maps and digital images from the excavations (approximately 20 images per site). Site
summaries will be modeled upon several currently online but will expand and broaden the
coverage given to each excavation (For examples of the City Archaeology Program's
information and images, see Appendix L). Resources from the City Archaeology Program will
provide comparative data for archaeologists working at other colonial and urban sites, will
facilitate the teaching of archaeology, and will supplement the virtual archive of Spanish colonial
artifacts which has been created by the Florida Museum of Natural History.

From the previously private unprocessed collection of Herschel Shepard, project staff will
digitize records and drawings of major preservation and restoration work of St. Augustine. The
Shepard Collection, which was donated to UF in 2010, documents Shepard's expertise in
Florida's historic architecture and his many contributions to preservation and restoration in the
state. Shepard's work covers the entire range of Florida's architectural past, including
restoration of landmark buildings such as the 1902 Florida State Capitol in Tallahassee and
reconstruction of such historically significant sites as the Second Seminole War era Fort Foster
and the Spanish mission site of San Luis de Apalachee. The total collection of hundreds of
original drawings and thousands of documents and photographs includes all of Shepard's works
on the colonial buildings of St. Augustine. Shepard has worked in architectural restoration and
reconstruction of St. Augustine buildings since 1970, and 25 historic structures are documented
thoroughly with drawings, research notes, and photographs (See Appendix I). These buildings
include the Ximenez-Fatio House, de Mesa-Sanchez House, Tovar House, Government House,
Castillo de San Marcos and Fort Matanzas. This project will digitize approximately 800
drawings, photos and documents from the Shepard Collection.

Finally, Unearthing St. Augustine will incorporate digital objects and resources created by UF
and other institutions, including but not limited to:
* The Spanish Land Grants (Florida State Archives)
* Mission San Luis
* Florida History Online (University of North Florida)
* St. Augustine: America's Ancient City (Florida Museum of Natural History)
* Index to the East Florida Papers (University of Florida)
* Spanish Colonial St. Augustine: A Resource for Teachers (NEH/Florida Humanities Council)
* Colonial People of Pensacola (University of West Florida)
* Castillo de San Marcos (1672)
* Fort Mose: Historical Overview
* Fort Matanzas (1742)
* Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine (1797)
* Fort Caroline (1564)
* Mission Nombre de Dios (1565)

The Significance of Colonial St. Augustine as a Research Focus
Since the 1970s, research in St. Augustine has elicited attention from scholars in history,
archaeology, and historic preservation throughout the US. Efforts to protect and promote its
historical importance have been ongoing since early in the 20th century.1 UF traditionally has
played a major role in this research, through its 1) Historical Archaeology program, under the
direction of Dr. Kathleen Deagan and the Florida Museum of Natural History; 2) Historic

Preservation program, offered by the UF College of Design, Construction and Planning; and 3)
efforts to collect primary source material on the colonial era, as archived at the P.K. Yonge
Library of Florida History. These enduring connections between UF and St. Augustine now
include a new role as UF assumes, through legislative action, a trusteeship over state-owned
historic properties in St. Augustine. As in the past, UF seeks to support educational programs
that ultimately fulfill "the state's needs for professionals in historic preservation, archaeology,
cultural resource management, cultural tourism, and museum administration."2

This project will address current research interests in colonial St. Augustine, especially the role
it played in early America and the Spanish borderlands. The city remains one of the best-
documented examples of a Spanish colonial frontier settlement. The town plan, established at
the end of the 16th century (1586-1597), is registered as a National Historic Landmark.3 The
foundations of St. Augustine's fort, the Castillo de San Marcos, date to the 17th century and the
core structure still bears the basic colonial form it achieved in the 1750s. Other surviving
colonial buildings number about 36 structures and date from the 18th or early 19th centuries.4
They are an important record of houses from this time period. St. Augustine is also one of the
only former colonial cities of Spanish America with an intact local government archive (the East
Florida Papers, Library of Congress) and its Plaza de las Armas boasts the only known original
monument to the Spanish liberalized constitution of 1812. More than 40 years of archaeological
work have documented life during all periods of the town's history, notably its colonial
residences, nearby Native American and mission communities, and free black fort and
settlement. Among the hundreds of studies produced are such benchmark works in Florida
history, archaeology, and architecture as:
* Albert Manucy, The Houses of St. Augustine: notes on the architecture from 1565 to 1821
(1962), still the standard reference work for local colonial architectural traditions.
* Michael V. Gannon, The Cross in the Sand, The Early Catholic Church in Florida, 1513-
1870 (1965), one of the founding works to prompt historical and archaeological inquiry into
the mission system.
* Eugene Lyon, The Enterprise of Florida, Pedro Men6ndez de Avil6s and the Spanish
Conquest of 1565-1568 (1976), the key biography of the founder of the town.
* Luis R. Arana and Albert Manucy, The Building of the Castillo de San Marcos (1977), in both
English and Spanish, which has been in continuous print since its first publication.
* Kathleen Deagan, Spanish St. Augustine, the Archaeology of a Colonial Creole Community
(1983), one of historical archaeology's most influential works in comparisons between
Spanish and British colonial sites.
* Kathleen Deagan and Darcy MacMahon, Fort Mose, Colonial America's Black Fortress of
Freedom (1995), the book created to accompany the national touring exhibit, now a
perennial favorite among general readers.
* Jane L. Landers, Black Society in Spanish Florida (1999), the pioneering scholarly study of
the lives of free people of color in the Spanish borderlands.

The Historic St. Augustine Research Institute, a collaborative project of Flagler College and UF
supported by the St. Augustine Foundation, lists over 25 theses and dissertations on colonial St.

New research titles also continue to appear with regularity. Since 2000, colonial St. Augustine
has garnered attention from new studies in history, architecture, biography, and archaeology:
* Jane G. Landers (editor), Colonial plantations and economy in Florida (2000)
* Robert L. Kapitzke, Religion, Power, and Politics in Colonial St. Augustine (2001)

* Patricia C. Griffin (editor), The Odyssey of an African Slave by Sitiki (2009)
* Jane G. Landers, Atlantic Creoles in the Age of Revolutions (2010)

Articles and conference symposia continue to be regular features of the Florida Historical
Quarterly and in El Escribano, the journal of the St. Augustine Historical Society. Since 2000,
the Quarterly has published 15 articles on colonial Florida, four specifically on St. Augustine. El
Escribano has published two special issue volumes on the British period (2000 and 2001), one
marking the anniversary of the 1702 siege in St. Augustine, and another on the Castillo (2004).5
Upcoming anniversaries in Florida and St. Augustine history, between 2012 and 2021, will
inspire new publications. A strategic plan produced by UF for recommended management of
state historic properties in St. Augustine will be another catalyst for increased demands for
research materials (http://www.facilities.ufl.edu/staugustine/index.htm). In addition, the City
Archaeology Program and numerous community redevelopment projects conducted in and
around St. Augustine every year rely on basic maps and resources for project reporting.

Since 2004, the city has been the site of annual summer workshops for K-12 teachers: Between
Columbus and Jamestown: Spanish St. Auqustine. Funded first under the NEH We the People
initiative and now through the Florida Humanities Council (FHC), staff from UF and partner
institutions conduct these workshops and provide free educational materials for teachers to use
in the classroom via the Spanish Colonial St. Augustine site. By August 2010, 1,000 teachers
from across the nation will have participated in the program.

Unearthing St. Augustine's Colonial Heritage: An Interactive Digital Collection for the Nation's Oldest City

Besides academic scholarship, the colonial era is also the subject of texts and novels for
children, including Cobblestone Magazine's St. Augustine, America's Oldest City; Tristan Boyer
Binns' St. Augustine; Janet Riehecky's The settling of St. Augustine; Matthew C. Cannavale and
Robert Olwell's Florida, 1513-1821; Robyn Gioia's America's Real First Thanksgiving and Judy
Lindquist's Saving Home.

While the needs of such a diverse user-community are beyond anything but a full-scale
dedicated archives and library, Unearthing St. Augustine fulfills frequently-made requests from
researchers working on St. Augustine, in particular for access to English-language versions of
key historical documents, access to maps, and to basic data from archaeology and historic
preservation activities. This interactive digital collection will be a primary resource for scholars
and students in colonial and urban history, geography, historic cartography, cultural heritage
and museum studies. For the first time, this project will unify disparate resources, both
electronic and paper-based, held in multiple repositories and largely inaccessible to
researchers. More importantly, researchers will be able to manipulate digital resources and
contribute to the development of this interactive digital collection.

II. History, Scope and Duration

Unearthing St. Augustine builds upon technology and system architecture developed at UF
since 1997. In 2009, UF Libraries completed a pilot project, funded internally which established
a digital collection of vertical file materials from Government House. The bulk of the initial
Historic St. Augustine digital collection is comprised of 8.5 x 11 block and lot materials (approx.
3,000 items). Large, flat file materials (i.e., over the size of an 1 1x17 flatbed scanner) were
excluded from the project due to limited funds and the need for personnel to operate a large
format camera. The resulting digital collection provides a simple interface which is freely
accessible and keyword-searchable, but a more structured search and display system needs to
be developed to take advantage of these highly graphic unique resources.

Additionally, as part of the multi-year project From the Air: The Photographic Record of Florida's
Lands (2002-2010), funded by Florida's Library Services & Technology Act, UF developed the
technology, procedures, expertise and infrastructure required to digitize and make available
thousands of historic Florida aerial photos, as well as associated georectified data.
Georectification is the process of assigning geographical coordinates to specific points on
images. Currently in its third phase, the georectified digital objects and metadata created in this
project are delivered via the UF Digital Collections (UFDC) in the Florida Aerial Photoqraphy
collection. Early development of system architecture required to link maps with metadata
occurred in a 2003 project funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services entitled,
Ephemeral Cities: A Model for Developing an Historic Digital Atlas Based on Three Florida
Cities. Editing tools for digitization and metadata that will be used for Unearthing St. Augustine
initially were developed as part of the Digital Library of the Caribbean, a Technological
Innovation and Cooperation for Foreign Information Access (TICFIA) project from 2005 to the
present. UFDC currently allows authenticated users to edit object metadata online. Although
project staff will be creating detailed metadata for all digital objects during imaging, the project
partners and advisors will be provided with myUFDC accounts to review and edit metadata
online (see Appendix K). Following project completion, this feature will allow any authenticated
users to contribute descriptive information and establish relationships between digital objects.
This will be extremely useful as new objects are created or contributed by partners in the future.

Unearthing St. Augustine's Colonial Heritage: An Interactive Digital Collection for the Nation's Oldest City

III. Methodology and Standards

Unearthing St. Augustine consists of two major components: 1) UF and its partners, with
oversight from an Advisory Board (see Section V), will select and digitize approximately 8,000
objects, and 2) UF will create open-source programming and develop system functionality that
will significantly change the way in which researchers and expert users such as archaeologists
and preservationists discover, interact with, and make use of these digital objects.

1. Selection and Imaging

Selection Criteria prior to Project: The resources selected for this project, as identified above
in Section I, form a basic corpus of materials and were selected based on several criteria:
1. Given the sheer size of resources, the UF and its partners selected research materials
that have traditionally been consulted by researchers prior to beginning any project in St.
Augustine history, historic preservation, or archaeology.
2. Selection was restricted to those materials either in the public domain or legally owned
by project partners. Therefore, the focus of selection was on basic tools of research that
have not been reproduced previously in any fashion.
3. Although selection focused on St. Augustine, to provide context for users, some items
also document Spain's interests in Florida in the Southeast.
4. In addition to the 8,000 objects described in Section I, the Unearthing St. Augustine
collection will include approximately 3,000 items in existing digital collections:
Government House block and lot collection (see Section II above),Colonial St.
Augustine: A Resource for Teachers, Florida Map Collection, Sanborn Fire Insurance
Company Maps of Florida, and Aerial Photography: Florida.

Selection Criteria during Project: UF and its partners have established an Advisory Board to
review the corpus of materials that have been identified and to further refine the selection
process. The Advisory Board is comprised of archaeologists, historic preservationists, and
historians who have expertise in the colonial history of St. Augustine and Florida. The Board will
recommend items for inclusion in the project and identify gaps in content that need to be filled
by additional selection. Current membership of the Advisory Board consists of:
Dana Ste. Claire (Director, Department of Heritage Tourism, St. Augustine)
Susan R. Parker (Executive Director, St. Augustine Historical Society)
Carl Halbirt (City Archaeologist, City of St. Augustine Archaeology Program)
Roy E. Graham (Beinecke-Reeves Distinguished Professor, UF College of Design
Construction and Planning)
Glenn G. Willumson (Director, Museum Studies Program, UF College of Fine Arts)
Herschel E. Shepard (Fellow, American Institute of Architects Emeritus, Architect)

At the start of the project, the Advisory Board will meet with the UF Collection Curators (Tom
Caswell, Jim Cusick and John Nemmers) and the Project Manager (to be hired with grant funds)
in St. Augustine to discuss and review the selection process. Board members will be
responsible for selecting 1,500 additional documents from the collections of the St. Augustine
Historical Society and the P.K. Yonge Library of Florida History at UF to supplement the objects
selected prior to the project start. For example, the Historical Society has approximately 1,500
typescripts of documents from British colonial records that could be included with permission
from the Public Record Office/National Archives in London. The Board will provide guidance in
selecting these documents, and the Collection Curators will ensure that there are no legal or
privacy issues associated with selected items.






University of Florida
Unearthing St. Augustine's Colonial Heritage: An Interactive Digital Collection for the Nation's Oldest City

The Board also will advise city archaeologist, Halbirt, in selecting 50 of the 100 archaeological
sites included in the project (see Appendix H). Project selection criteria include: 1) researcher
interest and demand, 2) uniqueness or rarity of the materials, and 3) the ability of the materials
to fill in knowledge gaps or exemplify certain aspects of the city's colonial history. It is expected
that Board members will provide selection guidance throughout the duration of the project by
email, telephone or in person. Project staff and the Advisory Board will agree on communication
and evaluation procedures at project start.

Imaging
The majority of imaging and text capturing activities will be completed by the Digital Library
Center (DLC), a unit of UF Smathers Libraries. Some imaging will be conducted in St. Augustine
by partners, and some existing digital objects will be provided by both UF and its partners.

Pre-Imaging Activities
The project staff and Advisory Board will coordinate the transport of original objects from partner
repositories to UF for imaging. The Curators will train the Project Manager (TBD, funded by
NEH) to properly handle original objects. Originals will be transported from St. Augustine to
Gainesville in library cargo vans using archival containers and packing materials to ensure
safety. Prior to transport UF staff will work with partners to identify fragile items requiring special
handling and/or conservator review. Items selected for this project will be in good physical
condition; therefore, no detailed conservation work will be required. Upon arrival at UF, originals
will be delivered to the Preservation Department, where the Conservator will examine and apply
treatment to facilitate the imaging process. Items will be relaxed or flattened as needed, corners
will be unfolded, and tears interfering with handling will be mended. Multiple items attached
together will be separated when possible. The Conservator will note special handling
requirements and objects will be delivered to the DLC for imaging. The Conservator will be
available for consultation throughout the imaging process. The Project Manager will be
responsible for tracking the location of all original objects while at UF.

Metadata
Once objects are received by the DLC, Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard (METS)
metadata will be created in the DLC Tracking Database, and enhanced both automatically and
manually as objects move through the imaging workflow. The DLC Tracking Database assigns a
unique Bibliographic Identifier (BibID) to each object processed, and that BibID will be used to
track the item (see UF Metadata Information). The METS files will include technical and
structural data about each image, as well as descriptive and administrative information. Any pre-
existing metadata (e.g., from catalog records) will be imported into the DLC Tracking Database
at the start of imaging.

Imaging
The Project Manager and a Scan Technician (TBD, funded by NEH), will be responsible for
scanning objects in the DLC. DLC personnel will provide initial training and supervision for the
project staff in the image capture and enhancement process. All objects will be digitized to meet
standard requirements for the item's physical format. Photographs and documents will be
scanned on Copibook or flatbed scanners (Microtek 9800 XL and Epson 1640 XL) at a minimum
of 300 dpi, 8-bit grayscale or 24-bit color. Maps, architectural drawings and other large format






University of Florida
Unearthing St. Augustine's Colonial Heritage: An Interactive Digital Collection for the Nation's Oldest City

materials will be imaged at a minimum of 300 dpi using a Super 8K-HS digital camera. Imaging
staff will perform initial review of all digital objects, adjusting images as necessary. Advanced
image enhancement will include adjustment of levels, skew, color and contrast. Images will be
captured as uncompressed TIFF files (ITU T.6) at 100% scale. All imaging hardware and
software will be calibrated regularly in order to maintain color fidelity and optimum image results.
Images will be captured onto an 8 terabyte storage area network (SAN) connected via network
cabling to computer workstations running Microsoft Windows XP or higher and Adobe
Photoshop CS 4 or higher.

The Project Manager also will serve as primary liaison with the partners who will be scanning
objects in St. Augustine. The Historical Society will use grant funds to purchase a flatbed
scanner ($1,200) and computer workstation ($800) to scan any objects that cannot to travel to
Gainesville. The City Archaeology Program also will contribute extant digital images created at
various sites in the city. All partner images will be transmitted to UF via FTP and/or on portable
drives. These images will be added to the Tracking Database and processed along with images
created at UF, as described below.

All imaging in the DLC will be completed in accordance with established professional standards.
Imaging methods will depend on object characteristics, and will follow principals and guidelines
established in Movinq Theory into Practice: Digital Imaging for Libraries and Archives (Anne R.
Kenney and Oya Y. Rieger [Mountain View, CA : Research Libraries Group, 2000] and Cornell
University's Digital Imaqing Tutorial. Specifications for imaging (i.e., scanning, text, and
metadata) will be based on digitization specifications previously established by UF and other
partners for the PALMM cooperative (http://fclaweb.fcla.edu/node/590/). These specifications
are optimized for data exchange with or harvesting by other digital libraries such as the U.S.
National Science Foundation's National Science Digital Library, the U.S. Institute for Museum
and Library Services' National Leadership Grant collection, and OAlster at the University of
Michigan.

Quality Control & Derivate Creation
After imaging and image enhancement, all aspects of image control and digital package
creation will be controlled by the University of Florida Digital Collections (UFDC) Toolkit, an
integrated software package that controls derivative image formation, quality control review at
the package level, and deployment to UFDC servers. DLC staff will derive JPG, JPG2000 and
JPG thumbnail images. JPG2000 files with zoom features will be used in the display of large-
format maps and drawings online. A Quality Control tool will display thumbnails of each image in
sequential order for staff review. Errors will be noted and returned to the imaging unit for re-
imaging of items. At this point, an object's METS file will contain basic structural and
administrative metadata, as well as any pre-existing descriptive metadata imported at the start
of the process.

Digital Package & Text Processing
After quality control, the digital package moves to text conversion, mark-up, and METS file
validation. Staff will ensure that all package-level metadata conforms to the national METS, to
local extension schemas, to UFDC requirements, and for long-term digital preservation in the
Florida Digital Archive (FDA) (see "Digital Preservation" below). Staff will implement Optical
Character Recognition (OCR) processing to produce searchable text from digital images. The
DLC currently uses Prime Recognition's PrimeOCR software, which bundles six OCR engines
from multiple vendors. PrimeOCR is governed by a voting engine that typically yields 99%
accuracy. It includes automatic image zoning, and can process English, Spanish, and French.
The Project Manager will work with the text processing unit to proof all OCR-produced text.






University of Florida
Unearthing St. Augustine's Colonial Heritage: An Interactive Digital Collection for the Nation's Oldest City

With the exception of maps, photos, handwritten documents and items lacking significant text,
all objects will go through OCR processing. The Project Manager and Collection Curators will
create descriptive metadata for objects lacking OCR text. Metadata can be created during
imaging, and project staff and partners will be able to create or revise metadata after the objects
are available online (see Online Metadata Editing below). With final package approval, staff will
use the UFDC Toolkit to transfer the package to the UFDC server for public access and
metadata harvesting, send the package to the FDA for preservation archiving, and save it to
tape backup for local archival storage.

Post-Imaging Conservator Review
When returned to Preservation, original materials will be regrouped and reattached if necessary,
foldered and/or boxed and prepared for return to the appropriate repository. The project staff
and Advisory Board will transport objects to St. Augustine, where partners will confirm receipt.
All partner repositories store original objects in proper environmental conditions to ensure long
term stability. All original objects will continue to be freely available to researchers.

Digital Preservation
In practice consistent for all UF digital projects, redundant digital archives are
maintained. Currently the two primary archives are maintained by the UF Libraries and the
Florida Digital Archive. UF maintains an internal ready-access archive of all files in the DLC.
Files are saved to a tape archiving system and tapes are retained in environmentally controlled
storage. Information about tapes and their contents are logged in the UFDC Database and the
DLC Tracking Database, with MD5 checksum numbers and file format and version information,
in association with administrative and bibliographic metadata. The Databases queue disks and
files for inspection every three years and migration every ten years or upon format
obsolescence.

The Florida Digital Archive (FDA) is administered by UF and is a digital preservation partner
with the UF Libraries. The FDA was initially funded in part by a grant from the Institute for
Museum and Library Services, and is now supported through the State University Libraries of
Florida. Physically, all digital information is stored in off-line systems under FDA administration
at UF's NorthEast Regional Data Center on IBM Magstar 3590 extended length cartridges (i.e.,
magnetic tape). Cartridges are inspected routinely, refreshed as necessary, and periodically
migrated to replacement media. All electronic data is stored with MD5 checksum for verification
of data integrity. Metadata is maintained in METS-compliant data structures. Bibliographic
metadata, including cataloging, is also retained in FDA maintained and archived bibliographic
systems. The software programmed to support the FDA is modeled on the widely accepted
Open Archival Information System. It is a dark archive and no public access functions are
provided. It supports the preservation functions of format normalization, mass format migration
and migration on request. The process of forwarding original uncompressed TIFF images to the
FDA is the key component in UF's plan to store, maintain and protect St. Augustine object data.

Deployment
Project staff will create a project homepage, including all project documentation and resources.
A Project Programmer (TBD, funded by NEH) will be responsible for developing the UFDC
System Architecture described below. Discovery of the St. Augustine digital collection will occur
in several ways: 1) A project homepage made available as part of UFDC; 2) MARC records with
linked 856 fields in online catalogs of UF, WorldCat, etc.; 3) Encoded Archival Description
(EAD) finding aids available on partner homepages and contributed to Archives Florida, a
statewide union database of EAD finding aids; 4) OAI compliant metadata harvested by digital
repositories; and 5) complete electronic packages contributed to other online collections.






University of Florida
Unearthing St. Augustine's Colonial Heritage: An Interactive Digital Collection for the Nation's Oldest City

Discoverability of the digital objects will be enhanced by a variety of search and browse options.
The primary interface will be map-based, which is described in the System Architecture section
below. Researchers also will be able to conduct keyword and subject searches of all of the
collections simultaneously from the main project page. Alternatively, they will search each
collection individually or combine two or more collections in their search scope. In addition, all
digital objects will be discoverable via the UFDC homepage, so researchers can search them in
combination with all the other digitized materials held by UF and its partner institutions.

Researchers also will be able to browse indexes to all of the resources included in the project.
The project homepage will include a directory to the 100 archaeological investigation sites
contributed by the St. Augustine Archaeology Program. For each site, the project will include a
site map or profile plan, a summary of site history and archaeological investigations, and links to
all digital images related to the excavations. Digital objects will include up to 20 photographs for
each site, with full descriptions, demonstrating results of the site investigations. These digital
images were created previously during site excavations and will be contributed by the City
Archaeologist. The project staff and Advisory Board will create the site summaries, based on
extant field notes and research materials. Appendix H demonstrates the quantity of information
and images available for each site.

In addition to the metadata created and maintained in UFDC, the Collection Curators will create
descriptions for the collections in the form of MARC catalog records and EAD finding aids. All
objects from the Herschel Shepard Collection, for example, will have links to an EAD finding aid
describing that collection, while the EAD finding aid and MARC record will have links to the
UFDC collection page and individual objects. Likewise, an EAD inventory will describe and
provide links to the digital objects for the 1,200 architectural drawings, historical maps, and
government documents from Government House.

Rights and Privacy
Selection was restricted to those materials either in the public domain or legally owned by
project partners. Project pages will include a rights and privacy statement, and means for
individuals to request that offending digital objects be removed.

2. System Architecture
The Unearthing St. Augustine collection will be delivered using UF Digital Collections (UFDC)
system architecture. UFDC operates on an engine named SobekCM, open-source software
being developed at UF. SobekCM currently works in conjunction with the open-source
Greenstone digital library system, but the UFDC architecture allows for platform independence
and easy migration to other digital library management systems. SobekCM also allows for
online object submittal and editing of metadata.

The project will produce an interactive digital collection that will incorporate features and
functionality desired by expert users, and that will be easy to use for novice users. Throughout
system architecture development the Advisory Board will review and provide feedback in an
iterative process, ensuring the user interface is designed based on needs of users.

The Project Programmer will develop programming and enhance the current UFDC system to
provide advanced features and functionality. The Programmer will develop the system using a
variety of existing technologies including SobekCM, the Google Maps API, JPG2000, Javascript
and Flash. Both during and following imaging, the project staff and Advisory Board will create
descriptive and structural metadata for programming to enable advanced interface functionality.






University of Florida
Unearthing St. Augustine's Colonial Heritage: An Interactive Digital Collection for the Nation's Oldest City

The Programmer will create an interactive map interface and workspace allowing users to
control how they interact with digital objects and related data. At its simplest, the map will allow
users to discover and access resources by clicking on map locations. Users will have the ability
to reveal/hide sites on the map associated with particular collections (e.g., excavation sites of
the city archaeologist or buildings renovated/reconstructed by Herschel Shepard). The
interactive map will be similar to the user-friendly Google Map interface, and will include
functionality and features that users expect today: zoom, pan, image rotation, user-contributed
comments, and the ability to print, save and link. Additionally, the Programmer will focus on
developing these advanced functionalities:
Allowing users to reveal/hide particular structures, roads or other features.
Allowing users to create markers, lines, and simple shapes such as circles or rectangles
on images.
Enabling searching for information and/or elements on images.
For georectified maps, displaying latitude and longitude information.
Allowing users to save and share images or sets of images that have been manipulated.
Layering maps or other images over each other with user control of layer transparency.

The map interface will be based on georectification of map images and the linking of objects to
specific locations on those maps. The UF GIS Coordinator will train project staff to create points
and polygons denoting specific sites and structures on maps. Staff also will connect digital
objects and their corresponding physical locations and property boundaries on the maps using
metadata elements such as place names, physical addresses, construction/destruction dates,
and coordinates. In anticipation of this system enhancement, UF staff previously input
geographic coordinates for items in the Government House block and lot files that were digitized
as part of a 2009 grant project.

Once the digital objects have been described with chronological metadata and linked to
georectified maps, the Programmer will develop a Flash application that allows users to view the
creation, alteration or destruction of structures and sites during specific time periods. The
Programmer also will create an alternative view that does not rely on Flash technology, to
ensure the widest possible audience.

UF currently is developing a contribution system allowing for online input provided by
authenticated and anonymous users, and the Programmer will incorporate this technology into
the interactive digital collection. An editorial system will accept contributions automatically from
approved users, and place all other contributions in an editorial system where contributions will
be vetted and, once approved, will then be added to the existing metadata. (see Appendix K)

3. Sustainability and Future Support/Development
Revealing the research rich collections of UF, the Digital Library Center has digitized and
mounted over five million items since its inception in 1997. UF's existing open access servers
have the necessary memory and storage to support and deliver all of the digital images and
metadata created during the project. As the project continues to grow beyond the grant period,
DLC can easily scale if needed because UF has a commodity storage and hosting design,
supported through the Open Systems Group. UF and its partners are committed to providing
universal online access to these unique historical resources, and this project will encourage
people to explore the earliest days of one of the oldest cities in North America.
This project offers exciting new opportunities for both the partner institutions and for researchers
and expert users far beyond the duration of the grant. UF is committed to investigating new
methods allowing users to control how they interact with digital resources. Following project






University of Florida
Unearthing St. Augustine's Colonial Heritage: An Interactive Digital Collection for the Nation's Oldest City

completion, users will be able to enhance discoverability and comprehension of the resources
by contributing metadata for objects online, defining relationships between resources, and
manipulating images online. UF and partners will be able to expand the project by digitizing
additional colonial St. Augustine objects. UF has the technology infrastructure and programming
expertise to ensure the long-term sustainability of the interactive digital collection. Additionally,
because UF's SobekCM will be released as open-source software, the programming developed
for this project will be available for use in other projects created by UF or others.

VI. Dissemination

Unearthing St. Augustine will be promoted broadly to local, national and international scholars,
teachers and the general public. The City of St. Augustine and the state of Florida anniversaries
in 2013 and 2015 respectively will provide the most beneficial opportunities for promoting this
project, its partners and its outcomes. The interactive digital collection will be available freely
and universally. UF and its partners will create and widely disseminate information about the
project and the resources. UF also will publish technical documentation about the project and
publicize the system architecture developed and subsequently released as open source
programming.

To increase discovery of and access to the St. Augustine resources, UF will contribute digital
objects and metadata to digital repositories and other online collections. UF digital collections
are automatically disseminated via OAI and MARCXML feeds to multiple harvesters and
repositories including: Trove, NINES, 18thConnect, WorldCat and other library catalogs,
OAlster, and other aggregators.

All project partners and participants will contribute to dissemination activities. Collection
mangers and subject specialists at UF and the partner St. Augustine institutions will promote the
new resource to researchers and colleagues. Additional publicity will be conducted using:
Press releases to media outlets and listservs, both general and subject-specific.
Articles published in journals, newsletters, and blogs.
Presentations at conferences and meetings.
Contributions of digital objects to social networking sites such as Flickr.com and
Youtube.com to encourage discovery.

UF Libraries public information office will provide professional promotional and marketing
services to implement many of the publicity strategies listed above.

The real strength of the dissemination plan, though, is that members of the Advisory Board will
use their extensive network of colleagues internationally to disseminate information about and
encourage future development of the interactive digital collection. As leading experts in the
archaeology, historic preservation and history of Florida and colonial America, the advisors will
effectively and authoritatively promote the project to a very broad audience. Their efforts, along
with publicity efforts undertaken by UF and its partners, will ensure that the project receives the
widest exposure.

Dear Tom,

Please accept this letter of strong commitment and support for the UF Libraries' NEH proposal to digitize
materials related to St. Augustine's colonial history.

As you are aware, the maps, drawings, records, correspondence and other extremely valuable material related to
the founding and development of the oldest European settlement in North America is deposited in scattered
places from St. Augustine to Spain and Britain. Some of the depositories are not even safe for material of this
importance and maintained in deplorable conditions of conservation and misuse. This is not only local history
but the Hispanic legacy of the entire country.

Most recently, through a grant from the St. Augustine Research Institute, I have been working to consolidate
research material related to the fortifications at St. Augustine, including the Castillo de San Marcos, which if
placed in context with other military structures in the Caribbean could be eligible to become part of a serial
nomination to the World Heritage List. Digitized colonial materials would be a tremendous help in
accomplishing this and other research projects brought about by the upcoming 450th Anniversary of the city's
founding. There are enormous gaps in the documentation of this National Historic Landmark site. Additional
research would greatly improve the conservation of the historic fabric of the district and we have Graduate and
PhD students who will greatly benefit from access to this digitized information.

I would commit to be an advisor to the group conducting this task and would gladly help in the selection of
materials to be digitized, making suggestions in developing the search parameters of the resulting database and
identifying depositories of research materials.

This proposal has my strongest endorsement.

RE; Digitizing Materials Related to the History and Archaeology of St. Augustine
Dear Tonim,
Please accept this letter of commitment and support for the O Libraries' NEH proposal to digitize
materials related to St. Augustine's colonial history. The proposed project has broad application for researchers,
government agencies, the tourist industry, and the public--all who are engaged preserving and promoting SL
Augustine's unique place in the history of the United States.
Access to various documents proposed for digitization are not readily available from their present
repositories in St. Augustine (i.e., at Government House, the St. Augustine Historical Society, and the City of St.
Augustine). Having the information structured and on-line will facilitate a myriad of purposes related to historic
preservation, planning, historical and archaeological research, and economic agendas, Moreover, as St Augustine is
approaching its 450W anniversary (2015), a structured on-line database will prove invaluable to the numerous public
committees that are being established by the City of St. Augustine to ensure the community's heritage is properly
interpreted.
As a participant in the project, I will provide information to LIF personnel related to archaeological
excavations undertaken by the City of St. Angustinc. Since the establishment of the city's Archaeological
Preservation Ordinance in 1987, more than 600 projects have been undertaken within the city limits (see the City
website at www.digstaue.or). Information for some of the more significant excavations that have altered our
understanding of St. Augustine's unique heritage will be posted on the UF website,
This proposal has my strongest endorsement

Dear Tom,

Please accept this letter of commitment and support for the UF Libraries' NEH proposal to
digitize materials related to St. Augustine's colonial history. This project will enable the Saint
Augustine Historical Society to make available translated typescripts of Florida's historical
documents with a beginning date of 1513. Many of the translations were done several decades
ago and have been available only to researchers who visit our research library.

If researchers can readily access documents whose originals are in archaic Spanish and
orthography, early European presence in the Americas and interaction with Native Americans
will be included more readily into the main historical narrative. Many researchers do not have
the knowledge to read or translate the documents, nor are even aware that they exist.

We will participate by making our translated typescripts available for digitization and provide
the personnel for scanning the documents. The Historical Society's research library can provide
space for scanners needed for this project and oversight of this portion of the project. As part of
the advisory group, I will be assisting in providing expertise on selection and suggesting
additional materials that might provide context or explanation. I have taught Florida history and
Spanish Borderlands history at the university level and assisted graduate students with master's
theses or doctoral dissertations as well as many seasoned scholars.

This proposal has my strongest endorsement.

RE: Commitment and Support for UF Libraries' NEH Proposal

Dear Tom:

I am pleased to pledge my commitment and support for the referenced project to digitize
materials related to St. Augustine's colonial history.

This work is of particular importance to me and others who continue the in estimation of
archaeological, historical, architectural, and other aspects of colonial St. Augustine. A
great deal of past and present work that has been accomplished in many areas is either
unpublished or available only in professional journals. This initial effort to provide
digitized copies of selected resources will not only benefit professionals in their particular
fields, but will also provide convenient access to a broad range of research to the general
public as well as professionals. In addition, this information will be of particular value to
teachers and students at all levels of education.

It will be an honor to serve on an advisory board that assists in the selection and
presentation of this material. To a certain extent, this important work continues the
research efforts of the former Historic St. Augustine Preservation Board and previous
commissions that are no longer active and enhances the valuable resources available in
Government House, the City Archaeology Program, and the St. Augustine Historical
Society. As an architect and professor in architecture at the University of Florida, I have
worked for many years with private owners, government officials, archaeologists,
historians, architects, students, and others associated with the preservation of the colonial
city. I look forward to contributing any knowledge gained from this experience toward
the successful completion of this project.

I strongly support this grant proposal and trust that it will be favorably considered.

Sincerely yours,


Herschel E. She ard, FAIA Emeritus

Gainesville, FL 32611-7017

Dear Mr. Caswell,

Please accept this letter as my commitment and support for the UF Libraries' NEH proposal to digitize
materials related to St. Augustine's colonial history.

In 2015, St. Augustine will lead the world in the commemoration of the 450th anniversary of the founding
of this first permanent European settlement in America. The 2 1/2 year long event will begin as the nation
observes the 5ooth anniversary of the exploration of Florida by Ponce de Leon in 2013. The St. Augustine
450th Commemoration will serve to fundamentally alter perceptions of the significance of St. Augustine
by communicating accurate historical information about its important role in the nation and the world. It
will also significantly increase international recognition of St. Augustine recognizing its central role in
world culture.

With the Commemoration quickly approaching, it is important we create an effective system for managing
and accessing historical documents. St. Augustine, the nation's oldest continuously occupied European
settlement, has a unique and rich colonial history, and that history should be shared. By digitizing these
materials, we will help to preserve and increase access to collections of maps, drawings, photographs, and
other pieces documenting the colonial heritage of the Nation's Oldest City.

Through festival events, engaging public education programs, authentic recreations, signature events,
exhibitions, history and archaeology programs, immersive living history experiences, and publications we
hope to share the rich and multicultural story of St. Augustine. Public interest in this history is expected to
rise, inspiring a new set of scholars, students, and the general public to become aware of the historical
resources they have access to.

As part of an advisory group that will be comprised of researchers in historic preservation, history and
archaeology, I will assist with selecting materials to be placed online, as well as providing guidance in how
the content is delivered and identifying functionality requirements for the interface.

This proposal has my strongest endorsement.

Dear Tom,

Please accept this letter of commitment and support for the UF Libraries' NEH proposal to digitize
materials related to St. Augustine's colonial history. As you know, my graduate seminar worked on
small exhibitions for the Government House in St. Augustine. The research was difficult, in part,
because so few materials were available. Your project promises to allow researchers easy access to the
critical materials that will allow future graduate students and scholars to reassess the history of
America's oldest city.

I look forward to the opportunity to participate in the selection of materials for digitization and to
discuss the ways in which these materials might be made available to researchers through search
parameters in the database. Your proposal is an exciting one, and I look forward to working with you
and your library colleagues.

This proposal has my strongest endorsement.

Dear Tom,

Please accept this letter of support for the UF Libraries' NEH proposal to digitize materials
related to St. Augustine's colonial history.

I spent 34 years in St. Augustine laboring in the fields of history and historic preservation
and, though now retired, continue to serve on boards involved in studying and preserving
the city's history, especially the colonial centuries.

The approaching 450th anniversary of the city's European founding will bring growing
academic and popular interest in its history. A foundation on which I serve is especially
interested in promoting greater awareness of the significance that St. A ugustine has in the
settlement and development of the state and nation.

For a variety of reasons., St. Augustine has been relatively ignored in the study of American
history. Among those are bibliographic scarcities and the language problems relating to the
original documents that pertain to the city's earliest years. This project promises to relieve
many of those problems. For those and related reasons I give it inN strongLet endorsement.

Dear Tom,

I am very pleased to write this letter in support of the University of Florida Libraries NEH proposal to
digitize and make available materials related to St. Augustine's colonial history.

Digital access to primary materials is probably the single most important factor in stimulating new and
diverse scholarship on St. Augustine's colonial history. This is also a very timely project, in that the 450th
anniversary of St. Augustine's founding will occur in 2015, providing an opportunity to focus both public
and scholarly attention on the role of Florida in our nation's history.

Many of the materials proposed for digitization are presently inaccessible to researchers owing both to their
storage conditions and to the fact that many of those in St. Augustine repositories are uncatalogued. This
project will bring them to the attention of scholars and students in history, archaeology and historic
preservation, and make them available for use.

The University Libraries have already demonstrated their commitment to providing accessible and
sophisticated digital resources for a wide variety of users, and have been extremely successful in those
efforts. The track record in this area is excellent, and this proposal has my strongest endorsement.

Sincerely,

Dear Tom,

Please accept this letter of support for the UF Libraries' NEH proposal to digitize
materials related to St. Augustine's colonial history.

This proposal represents a tremendous step forward in making digital materials on
architecture, historic preservation, excavation reports and related materials accessible to
researchers and scholars.

This digital archive would complement the architectural drawings and archives we have
at Avery Library. It would singlehandedly bring the UF Libraries on par with some of the
greatest architectural repositories in the world such as New York Public Library, Avery
Library and The Canadian Centre for Architecture. The depth and breadth of the
materials would provide additional resources to anyone interested in the development of
architecture in the United States.

Founded in 1565 by Spanish explorer and admiral, Pedro Menendez de Aviles, it is the
oldest continuously occupied European city in the United States. Its Spanish Colonial
buildings as well as the 19th century architecture is unparalled. Some of the same
architects who built in St. Augustine have been collected in Avery.

Researchers from the United States and Europe studying the development of cities as
well as the various eras of architecture represented in St. Augustine will find this material
invaluable.

This proposal has my strongest endorsement.

Dear Professor Caswell,

I write to express my support for your excellent proposal to digitalize and create an electronic
archive of the important, and under-utilized, historical and archaeological materials that have
been generated about colonial St. Augustine over the last decades.

As a scholar of the Spanish Southeastern borderlands, the circum-Caribbean, and the larger
Atlantic World, I have long recognized the international significance of St. Augustine, as well as
its importance in our national history. I can attest to the unique nature of the city's historical
documents, maps. and artifacts and tfirml) believe they are a national treasure that should be
made more accessible to a wider public. These records and archaeological reports document
much about the material culture, economy, and social and political organization of St. Augustine
and its indigenous and African hinterlands.

Having participated in public programming related to St. Augustine for over twenty years now, I
know the great interest St. Augustine and its unique history hold for educators and for the general
public. St. Augustine offes important lessons about the multicultural and internationally complex
nature of our early frontier history and about the evolution of race relations in this nation. This
project, then, has national and international significance and importance to the humanities. I wish
you all success with this very exciting project and look forward to %v working with you.

APPENDIX H: City of St. Augustine Archaeology Program Resources


Quantity: approx. 2000 digital items

Each archaeological site will have the following types of information and images:
A summary of the site history and the archaeological research conducted there
A site graphic or map
Samples, cataloged and appropriately described, of up to 20 images showing results of
excavations for that site
For examples of the types of information and images available from the city Archaeology
Program, see the site summaries for Nuestra Sehiora del Rosario de la Punta, the Pablo Sabate
site, and the Young Avenue site available at the city archaeology website at
http://www.digstaug.org/archives.cfm.

Representative Sites:
This list is a subset of the more than 500 properties investigated by the City of St. Augustine,
Florida, through its Archaeological Preservation Ordinance, under the purview of the City
Archaeologist, a staff position in the Planning and Building Department.

The following list is organized chronologically beginning with archaeological deposits from the
late prehistoric/contact era occupation (i.e., 16th century) and extending into the American
Territorial Period (1821 to 1845). Although later archaeological deposits are just as significant
and are more common, it is this 350 to 400 year window that generates the most interest by the
public and the media.

APPENDIX I: Herschel Shepard Collection (UF) Selected St. Augustine Projects


Quantity: approx. 800 drawings, photos and documents

Contents:
From the previously private unprocessed collection of Herschel Shepard, the project staff will
digitize records and drawings of major preservation and restoration work of St. Augustine. The
Shepard Collection, which was donated to UF in 2010, documents Shepard's expertise in
Florida's historic architecture and his many contributions to preservation and restoration in the
state. Shepard's work covers the entire range of Florida's architectural past, including
restoration of landmark buildings such as the 1902 Florida State Capitol in Tallahassee and
reconstruction of such historically significant sites as the Second Seminole War era Fort Foster
and the Spanish mission site of San Luis de Apalachee. The total collection includes hundreds
of original drawings and thousands of documents and photographs, including all of Shepard's
works on the colonial buildings of St. Augustine. Shepard has worked in architectural restoration
and reconstruction of St. Augustine buildings since 1970, and 25 historic structures are
documented thoroughly with drawings, research notes, and photographs.

S' COLONIAL HERITAGE



Search Collection: o




Unearthing St Augustine's Colonial Heritage seeks to bring the study of the past into the modern research environment. St.
Augustine has been a research mecca for archaeologists, historians, and other scholars seeking to understand the complex
legacies of the Spanish borderlands and the American Southeast. For half a century, the city has also been a focal point of work
in historic preservation. As Florida moves towards its 500th anniversary (2013) and St. Augustine looks ahead to the celebration of
the 450th anniversary of its founding (2015), researchers need 21st century Web access to materials that have traditionally been
available only in paper and often for on-site use only.

Unearthing St. Augustine's Colonial Heritage is a proposed project by many collaborative partners, including:
St. Augustine Historical Society
City of St. Augustine Archaeological Program
Dept. of Heritage Tourism/Government House
Herschel E. Shepard Collection
Please contact us for preliminary information on this proposed project as it develops; all finalized information will be posted to this
site as it becomes available.

The City of St. Augustine's Archaeology Program preserves St. Augustine's archaeological heritage, which is unparalleled in the
quantity and diversity of remains buried beneath its buildings, streets, and backyards- These deposits not only reflect the City's
European origins since 1565, but also a rich and varied Native American heritage that has been in existence for thousands of
years. The intent of the City's archaeology program is not to stop or limit development, as St. Augustine is a vibrant and evolving
urban community, but to preserve the information of those buried remains subject to potential destruction through documentation.

myUFDC & myDLOC Administrator Tools

myUFDC/myDLOC offers robust administrator tools for managing:

Aggregations (collection groups, collections, subcollections, institutions, institutional
divisions)
Web skins / interfaces
Wordmarks
Users
Projects

Aggregations

Any collection of items into a distinct searchable or browseable set is an item aggregation. This
includes collections, subcollections, institutions, exhibits, etc. Each item aggregation has its own
home page and the search types and browse types can be defined for that page.

All items must be listed in at least one aggregation, but a single item can be cross-listed with as
many collections as are applicable. This allows a single item to be in multiple subject-based
collections (and collection groups and subcollections) as well as being listed in the correct
institutional collection for the contributing partner. For this project, all of the


Web skins / interfaces

HTML interfaces provide a unique way to control the look and feel of each page served by this
digital library. The interface controls the stylesheet used, as well as the header and footer. This
allows the same digital collection to be branded by each of the partners involved.

The following screenshots are the same collection, Florida Photographs, with different web skins
in use.

Users


Administrators can assign a number of permissions for different user levels, including the ability
to submit items and the ability to edit collections as a collection manager or curator.
Administrators can also assign project templates to users.


Projects


Projects hold default metadata templates for use in online submittals. The project-level data is
stored in a project-level metadata file that can be edited using the standard full online metadata
form. When a user begins to add a new digital resource for a defined project, the project-level
data is loaded into the digital resource, before the user views the item in the online submittal
form. The project-level data usually includes the item aggregation information linked to the
project, as well as common default data including wordmarks and funding statements.
