MA Laws to be Digitized
From the latest issue of College & Research Libraries News comes word that the the State Library of Massachusetts and the Joseph P. Healey Library at UMass Boston will join forces to scan more than 250,000 pages of Massachusetts session laws from 1620 to the present. Scanning will be done at the BPL's Northeast Regional Scanning Center. The project, sponsored by the Sloan Foundation and the Boston Library Consortium, will get underway this fall.
