This database is freely available to the general public via the Internet.


The NYCRR Digital Archive provides free access to the superseded pages ("takeouts") of the New York Codes, Rules and Regulations for the years 1945-2001 in pdf format. The dates covered in this database represent the online debut of New York’s regulatory history material covering this time period.

This free resource will allow researchers, librarians, and practitioners to more easily determine previous versions of New York’s codes, rules, and regulations, a task performed in print that is currently quite difficult and time-consuming.

Approximately one million pages have been scanned and converted to searchable PDFs.  As a service to the New York legal community and the legal community at large, this project was collaboratively funded and staffed by three institutions: Charles B. Sears Law Library at the University at Buffalo, the Appellate Division Fourth Department Law Library in Rochester, and the New York State Supreme Court Library in Buffalo.   Portions of the scanned pages contain New York State’s copyrighted material and are included with the permission of the Secretary of State.
