Primary Sources: Part I, 1620-1926: Contains more than 1,300 individual titles consisting of about 2,225 volumes sourced chiefly from the Lillian Goldman Law Library at Yale University, with additional materials provided by the Law Library of Congress. Its 1.8 million pages span over 300 years of legal primary sources, such as early U.S. state codes, municipal codes, constitutional conventions and compilations, and other documents, many of which have heretofore only been available as bound volumes or in microfilm.
Primary Sources, Part II, 1763-1979: Extends this acclaimed archive into the second half of the twentieth century with more than 1.6 million newly scanned pages drawn from the three world-class American law libraries: the Harvard Law School Library, the Yale Law Library, and the Law Library of Congress. Comprised of United States codes, constitutional conventions and compilations, and municipal codes, Part II enhances scholarly access to essential documents in American legal history and is fully cross-searchable with Primary Sources, Part I.
