The State Library and Archives of Florida would like to thank the Maine State Library for giving permission to adapt the calculator for Florida use.

The calculator worksheet has been adapted from the downloadable spreadsheet, originally provided by the Massachusetts Library Association and then adapted for the Web by Chelmsford Public Library. Maine State Library added extra accessibility coding and reformatting for ease of reading online. This spreadsheet requires either Microsoft Excel or the free Excel Viewer.
