Education & Training

NCSTL recently acquired four special collections. They include:
  • The Caywood Collection is an assortment of articles, pamphlets, and other resources from the estate of Douglas J. Caywood, most of which relate to the topics of questioned documents and firearms. The Caywood Finding Resource is A Collection Guide developed by NCSTL's Marcus Parker and Anthony Smith.

    The Caywood Collection is in a special room on the Gulfport campus of Stetson Law School. Access is available by appointment.

  • The Questioned Document Article Database (QDAD). The American Society of Questioned Document Examiners (ASQDE) shared its Questioned Document Article Database (QDAD) resources and NCSTL is incorporating the QDAD records into its database.

  • Florida Division of the International Association for Identification’s (FDIAI) historical newsletters. NCSTL is developing an electronic inventory and index of the journals which will allow readers to access their historical content.
