A joyous day in Jeffersonland

Posted in: A Summary View, Thomas Jefferson

Cue the angel chorus! At long long long last, the Papers of Thomas Jefferson are now available online! (And this morning I see that the site is already down. Perhaps we have already loved it to death. I'm sure it will be back up presently.) The site currently provides the full content, including illustrations, contained in volumes 1 through 33 of Princeton's Papers of Thomas Jefferson. Subsequent volumes will be appearing in the Digital Edition as they are published, or so I assume. The Retirement Papers will also be up there later this year. This will make life a lot easier for many people researching Jefferson and his era.  Not to mention saving me a lot of time in quote-hunting!  The mind boggles at all the delightful ways this development will change our lives...
