Have you ever been to an archive?
The experience can be a bit intimidating at first. You stare at the shelves of books, manuscripts, and documents – folders, folders, and more folders! But hunting through these historical records can also be inspiring and enlightening.
RICHES Mosaic Interface™ is also an archive – though not in the traditional sense. There are important historical materials, organized by topic, time, theme, and place. There are collections and exhibits. What makes this archive so special, though, is the fact that you can visit from the comfort of your desk or sofa!
RICHES Mosaic Interface™ is a searchable database that stores a vast collection of central Florida items in Omeka, an open-source publishing platform. Check out some of these great historical finds! They represent a small sample of the database’s 1,000-plus items, which are uploaded by local museums and private collectors. Click on the picture to learn more about it.
