Content and structure elements

Scope and content

University of Miami Legacy contains photographs and media selected from the University of Miami Historical Photographs Collection and the Oral History Collection housed in the Special Collections of the University of Miami Libraries.  The inspiration for this website was a Richter Library exhibit developed by Tina Surman and Ruthanne Vogel in celebration of the University's 75th Anniversary.

This site is the product of the efforts of two University of Miami librarians. Lyn MacCorkle was responsible for the database development and web design, and Ruthanne Vogel worked with item selection and provided the historical research for the textual content.
