Central Florida Memory (CFM) started as a pilot project between the University of Central Florida Library, The Orange County Library System and the Orange County Regional History Center. The successful pilot project was awarded an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) 2004 National Leadership Grant for Library-Museum Collaboration, and the partnership has grown to also include the Museum of Seminole County History and the Rollins College Olin Library.
Central Florida Memory was created to provide access to library, museum, historical society, and archival content in Central Florida; produce an ostensive digital resource for scholars, students, teachers, genealogists, residents, visitors, and the general public; assist museums, historical societies, and libraries in digitizing their collections and becoming forums for sharing expertise and technical knowledge, offer a digital archive for those unable to establish their own digital infrastructure, provide a digital resource for K through 12 teachers to bring the region's history into lesson plans, and contribute to the larger body of knowledge of Florida history via access to the CFM Web site through other statewide project sites.
