This online collection also includes access to the Documentary History of the Ratification of the Constitution, People of the Founding Era, and the Founders Early Access Project.
Many of these digital editions present material from published volumes, including editorial annotations and transcriptions of thousands of documents. The Rotunda Founders Early Access project makes available for the first time thousands of unpublished primary-source material.
This subscription collection provides powerful advanced search features and is interoperable across historical eras.
Rotunda was created by the University of Virginia for the publication of original digital scholarship along with newly digitized critical and documentary editions in the humanities and social sciences.
