Its more than 30,000 reels of Caribbean newspaper microfilm are just a small part of the Collection, which also holds rich primary resources in English, French and Spanish, as well as secondary resource in constitutional histories and law, in economics and literature, in culture and religious practices, etc. UF’s Institute for Food and Agricultural Sciences together with its Climate Centers augment the Collection with water and land use, and climate information for the region.
