The Research Library is an outgrowth of two of Florida's oldest cultural institutions: The Free Library Association of St. Augustine (est. 1872) and the St. Augustine Historical Society (est. 1883).


Highlights include:
  • Translations of the earliest (1594) church records in the nation
  • Copies of official Spanish and British Colonial documents (1513-1821)
  • The oldest municipal (1812) and county (1821) records in Florida
  • Outstanding collections of genealogical data from the sixteenth century to the present, especially for people of Minorcan descent
