The USF Libraries aim to drive solutions to our growing environmental challenges. In establishing the Environment and Natural History Collection, we can document and preserve the rare and important works of local and regional environmental scholars and conservationists. This rich collection integrates more than 20 existing collections, and includes data, photographs, discovery and analytical tools and published works needed to fuel research and inform solutions.
who we are
The USF Libraries inspire research, creativity and learning, and are actively building collections that support innovation and knowledge acquisition. To drive student and faculty success, we are evolving from providers of library services and collections to active partners in research and teaching.
Help us plan for our future by supporting the USF Libraries in building a powerful and comprehensive Environment and Natural History Collection. Your support will allow us to curate existing collections and acquire, digitize and preserve rare resources that will aid in finding solutions for the future of our environment.
