James Madison's papers go digital

By Washington Post editors

President James Madison’s papers are being added to the University of Virginia's digital collection of the Founding Fathers' documents.

The university says digital versions of 17 print volumes of Madison's papers are available online at the University of Virginia Press' Rotunda Web site. The university plans to publish an estimated 18 additional volumes in both formats.

The papers include letters, essays, notes, account books, diaries and legal documents.

Rotunda manager Mark Saunders says the U-Va. community has free access to the collection. Others can view brief summaries but a subscription is required for access to the complete collection. A free two-day trial is available.
