"[ The Papers of George Washington] is a magnificent accomplishment in historical and scholarly editing.... Now, the University of Virginia Press, under its 'Rotunda' electronic imprint, has issued a searchable, full-text digital edition, and it is a notable achievement. The Digital Edition (PGWDE) offers a synergy that builds upon the printed one, and brings a wealth of Washington scholarship and primary source material together in one digital file.... No other [presidential papers] project offers researchers the bounty of the landmark PGWDE. Highly recommended.
