Every Picture Tells a Story: Metadata and the Citrus Collections at Florida Southern College
Florida Southern College is located in Lakeland on the site of a former orange grove, making the connection to the Citrus Industry a constant presence in our collections. This relationship was reinforced with the establishment of the Citrus Institute in 1947 providing training and education to future leaders in the field, at that time being the only private school in the United States with a citrus curriculum. The collection of materials related to the Citrus Industry grows by donations every year. This digital collection is a composite of a variety of collections that span the 1900’s through present day. The web content management system used is ContentDM.
