The Archives, Special Collections, & Digital Initiatives of Florida Gulf Coast University’s Bradshaw Library advances research and serves the Southwest Florida community by acquiring, preserving, and providing public access to original primary source materials.
The Archive collects the institutional history and scholarly output of Florida Gulf Coast University, as well as the cultural and environmental history of Southwest Florida. Our librarians, staff, and interns work to preserve our collections, develop scholarly resources, and provide global access to the collections through DigitalFGCU. Two museum-quality exhibitions are available to the public each year, curated to highlight the collections or scholarship of the university.
You may view any items housed within Archives & Special Collections or just wander through the gallery and enjoy the current exhibit, the reading room is located on the third floor of the Bradshaw Library, room 322, and is open to the public Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm.
