ConSource Adds Digital Scans of Madison's "Notes"

We hear from our friends at ConSource (The Constitutional Sources Project) that it has added high-quality scans of James Madison’s Notes on the Constitutional Convention to its digital library:
The Constitutional Convention began in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on May 25, 1787.  Originally set to begin on May 14, a quorum was not achieved until May 25.

The Library of Congress recently released new high-resolution scanned images of James Madison’s Notes on the Constitutional Convention - a huge leap forward from the difficult-to-read scanned microfilm images that were previously available to the public.

We are pleased to share that ConSource has now paired these high-resolution images with their corresponding plain-text, searchable transcriptions in our digital library. Both the images and their corresponding transcriptions are organized chronologically by date on our website.
