La Florida – The Interactive Digital Archive of the Americas

La Florida


La Florida: The Interactive Digital Archive of the Americas is a unique collaborative initiative, combining innovative historical research with cutting-edge technology. The site offers users a multidisciplinary perspective of colonial Florida’s rich history, a history that extends far beyond what we think of as ‘Florida’ today. La Florida houses a searchable and comprehensive population database, along with other content that blends interactive maps, images videos, games, documents, and more. As an open access site, we invite researchers from around the world to explore the lives of the thousands of men and women who shaped Florida’s colonial past.

La Florida is a dynamic site, with exciting new content added regularly. The collaborative nature of this project will bring together historical content and technical innovation in ways we could not have imagined a decade ago.

At La Florida, we are committed to building an enduring site that will:

  • Promote innovative new scholarship on the history of colonial Florida, and its place in US and world history
  • Develop technologically advanced learning material to make primary sources accessible for all users
  • Provide unique research and publishing opportunities for students and scholars
  • Build institutional partnerships and interdisciplinary collaboration
  • Engage a global audience through thought-provoking research and creative technology
