This rather remarkable collection based at the University of Florida is a unique collaboration between that institution and a range of academic libraries, historical societies, and other organizations throughout the Caribbean. The collections here include the Panama and the Canal, Caribbean Newspaper Digital Library, and the Vodou Archive. The Panama and the Canal archive contains 172 items related to the history and geography of the Panama and Canal Zone. The items here include annual reports on the progress of the Canal's construction, along with photographs and maps. Moving on, the Caribbean Newspaper Digital Library offers a range of historic newspapers from Cuba, Brazil, and other countries in the region. Finally, the Vodou Archive contains 70 photographs, paintings, book covers and other items that document Vodou religion and culture.
