Florida Photographs is comprised of several collections that visually document Florida and the University of Florida in particular. Among the holdings, Florida is documented in photographs, postcards, three-dimensional artifacts, and other visual resources that capture the spirit of old and contemporary Florida alike.

Visual resources have been collected from the holdings of the University of Florida's Special Collections as well as from the collections of archives, historical societies, libraries, and museums beyond the University. The Florida Photographs collection in the University of Florida Libraries currently contains more than 10,000 images of Florida and UF history from the P.K. Yonge Library of Florida History and the University of Florida Archives. Additional contributors include the Alachua County Historic Trust: Matheson Museum, the Monroe County Public Library, Florida International University, the University of South Florida, and others.
