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 now available online at the University of Virginia Press' Rotunda website. The university plans to publish another estimated 18 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.
