Making of Modern Law: Primary Sources, 1620-1926, is a fully searchable digital archive of more than 1,300 individual titles consisting of about 2,225 volumes. Of interest to law libraries and historians of American history, and designed to complement Making of Modern Law: Legal Treatises, 1800-1926, it is sourced chiefly from the Lillian Goldman Law Library at Yale University, with additional materials provided by the Law Library of Congress. When completed in June 2010 it will be a virtual gold mine of information for legal historians. This new archive will contain:


 *   State Codes - A compilation of statutes in current effect, arranged by subject.  Primary Sources includes a comprehensive collection of the significant codes and code-like compilations from all states up to 1926


 *   Constitutional Conventions - Reports, journals, proceedings, and debates published by conventions enacting or amending state constitutions up to 1926


 *   City charters - Includes the texts of enacted and proposed charters and ordinances in American jurisdictions, together with official documents relating to them, and opinions of legal officers of cities


 *   Law Dictionaries - Primary Sources includes all the major American law dictionaries up to 1926, as determined by consulting the Yale Law Library and Library of Congress collections and their knowledge of the literature


 *   Published Records of the American Colonies - Includes nearly 70 titles that have been transcribed, edited, printed and indexed by six generations of scholars.  It includes the records and documents that detail the legislation and court proceedings marking the nation's tumultuous beginnings. Many of these valuable items have long since been lost or destroyed, making this a tremendously important resource for researchers
.

 *   And much more.


Note: We use the term primary in the legal sense of a case, statute, or regulation.
