The Florida Institute of Technology Digital Collections serves the online community by presenting unique information from the Library’s on-site Special Collections and University Archives. The primary objective in providing access to these digital resources is for educational and research purposes.
Three featured collections each represent a man who was a pioneer in his field of interest:
- Edwin A. Link is known as the Father of Flight Simulation. He is equally well known for building submersibles to safely explore archeological sites underwater.
- Edmund Skellings, Poet Laureate Emeritus of Florida, was among the first to use computer technology to create a wider audience for poetry.
- General John Bruce Medaris made his mark by directing the United States’ first successful space program, ushering in the modern age of space technology.
Digitized items from the collections include:
- audio and video recordings
- maps and charts
