The Law Library of Congress today unveiled digital copies of the printed bound volumes of the United States Experiences from 1791 to 2004, building a lot more than 35,000 Supreme Court situations available for the initial time online as website page visuals in a searchable structure.
Electronic copies of several of these viewpoints are by now available online in some style. What distinguishes the Law Library’s release is that its viewpoints are completely “digital surrogates” of the U.S. Experiences, according to Janice Hyde, the assistant regulation librarian for collections at the Law Library.
It is significant to have a “true illustration of the initial resource document,” Hyde points out, since only the printed bound volumes of the U.S. Experiences have the remaining, official viewpoints of the court docket.
As a result of a crowdsourcing hard work, about 50 regulation and library learners contributed to this undertaking by adding metadata to the situations. Metadata make the assortment searchable for key words and matters.
The assortment is online at https://www.loc.gov/collections/united-states-reports/>.
