The World Studies Collections contains seven collections regarding general area studies for all regions
of the world excluding Florida, the United States and the Caribbean. Collections within this collection group
can be roughly placed in two categories.
The first category represents general area studies and includes the Africana Collection, the
Asian Studies Collection, the European Studies Collection, and the
South American Collection. Materials covering Florida and the United States are found throughout all the
collections found in this digital library and materials specific to the Caribbean can be found in the seperate, collaborative
Digital Library of the Caribbean.
Several collections represent more narrow studies. The Jaqi Collection contains linguistic resource materials
for the study of Aymara, Jaqaru, and Kawki. The Spanish Borderlands Collection contains information
about the early history of the Spanish New World. The Rossica Collection contains historical documents
and journals published by the Rossica Society of Russian Philately.
