“We combined our funding, our talents and our staff and finally got the project going,” Lee said.
Last month, they announced the availability of the open-access database: NYCRR Digital Archive, which contains pages from the “New York Codes, Rules and Regulations” from 1945 to 2001 in full-text digital format. This free resource allows researchers, librarians and lawyers to more easily research previous versions of New York regulations. Fifty users at one time can access the material.
“It took us that long to get together and get it done,” Lee said. “It’s something that is and has been well-received by the law library community.”
