Reclaiming the Everglades, a 1997-98 Library of Congress (LC)/Ameritech award winner, is now online in LC's American Memory. University of Miami, Florida International University and the Historical Museum of Southern Florida contributed a wide range of materials selected from 16 collections for the digitizing project. These collections include the University of Miami's Marjory Stoneman papers, documenting Stoneman's career as a journalist, environmental activist, and founder of Everglades National Park; Historical Museum of Southern Florida's ephemera collection; and five complete publications from Florida International University, including the 1913 children's book, Boy Scouts in the Everglades, and engineering reports. Users can search by keyword, or browse name, title or subject indexes. There are also browseable lists of Everglades Timelines and Everglades Biographies. Visitors accustomed to American Memory's search interface should be aware that requesting a larger view of an image or the full text of a document takes you to the version of the collection hosted at Florida International University. This arrangement actually retrieves more related materials, but the search interface is different unless you resort to the browser back button to return to American Memory.
