Harvard Law Library to Put Collection Online

Unread post by Rick Lanham » Mon Nov 02, 2015 3:17 pm

The Harvard Law Library in association with others, is scanning over 42,000 law books containing state, federal, territorial and tribal court decisions in their library. These scans will be put online and made available to everyone. They are doing the states of California and New York first.

"Shelves of law books are an august symbol of legal practice, and no place, save the Library of Congress, can match the collection at Harvard’s Law School Library. Its trove includes nearly every state, federal, territorial and tribal judicial decision since colonial times — a priceless potential resource for everyone from legal scholars to defense lawyers trying to challenge a criminal conviction... Complete state results will become publicly available this fall for California and New York, and the entire library will be online in 2017, said Daniel Lewis, chief executive and co-founder of Ravel Law, a commercial start-up in California that has teamed up with Harvard Law for the project."
