UCF Associate Professor of History, Connie L. Lester, Ph.D., is Director of RICHES of Central Florida, and Editor of the Florida Historical Quarterly.

RICHES™ is an interdisciplinary digital project that partners with multiple academic units at the University of Central Florida, six other Florida universities, and commercial and nonprofit sectors of the community. The project has two goals: 1) to serve as a model for documenting regional history, especially “hidden” history and culture, through an interactive database that draws from multiple repositories and personal collections, and 2) to develop new digital tools for historians.
