Help Out AALT!

We post the following communication from Jonathan Rose, Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, Arizona State University, regarding the Anglo-American Legal Tradition (AALT) website created by Robert Palmer, University of Houston:
For those who work in English Legal History, one of greatest and most important research aids has been the University of Houston Law School O'Quinn Library AALT Website developed by Professor Robert Palmer, which has been photographing images of the National Archives-Public Record Office plea rolls. That online resource provides access to nearly 4,000,000 frames of content. The resources that have supported this project will be exhausted after the Summer of 2009. The O’Quinn Law Library is thus preparing an NEH grant. Success in receiving the grant would be greatly aided by user input. Thus, it would be greatly appreciated if users could provide that to Professor Palmer. More details and instructions are available here. Thank you for your time and effort.
