This website is an effort of the Government Documents Department of the George A. Smathers Libraries of the University of Florida to provide indexing of and access to government information on the World Wide Web. Initial funding for this project was provided through a Federal Library Services and Technology Act grant by the Florida State Library.

The site's primary mission is to meet the needs of researchers and the general public for access to information by and about the state of Florida and its local governments. Our goal is to provide this data within 2 or 3 mouse clicks.

Our secondary objective is to provide support for the federal depository librarians within Florida. To that end, an administration page was developed providing links to information useful to documents librarians. The Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) is designed to provide free access to information from all three branches of the federal government. Libraries that have been designated as Federal depositories are responsible for the maintenance and availability of materials provided by the FDLP.

Navigation around the site is facilitated through text links, drop menus, navigation bars, image maps, and a search function.

This site is designed to function fully with Internet Explorer 4.x or Netscape Navigator 4.x or later browsers. Some functions such as image swapping or client-side image mapping may not work with some earlier browsers. Alternative features have been provided for critical functions that do not work in earlier version browsers.

The webpages on this site are best viewed at a screen resolution of 800x600 pixels. At a lower resolution, such as 640x480 pixels, the pages are designed to allow horizontal scrolling to preserve the original look of the design.

  Text: Text hyperlinks to more detailed information or other sites are green or white, depending on the background color. Text that is strictly informational is black and not linked.

Drop Menus: The drop menus on these pages are javascript driven and have been tested to work with either Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator versions 4.0 or later. Hierarchies within the menus are designated through indentation.

Navigation Bars: Navigation bars are available at the top and bottom of most pages within the FEFDL site. The bars provide immediate access to the homepage, the depository administration page, the county index, the UF Documents Department homepage, the FEFDL sitemap, and the search function.

Maps: The FEFDL site contains a number of image and geographical maps. The image maps provide an active link to more information by mouse clicking on a portion of the image. Many of the geographical maps are, in turn, also image maps. Clicking on a delineated portion of an active geographical map will display more detailed information about that section of the map.

Search: The search capability of the FEFDL site currently functions through the InfoSeek search engine on the University of Florida server. The search is limited to the pages comprising the FEFDL site; however, the results page is served from the University of Florida server. A refined search will also be limited to the FEFDL pages. Use the "Back" button of your browser to return to the FEFDL site.
