American Founding Era Collection

Named a “Best Reference 2009” in History by Library Journal Rotunda’s American Founding Era collection offers scholars and students at all levels an invaluable source of primary and secondary materials by some of the era’s most enduring figures, including George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton. As publications are added to the Founding Era collection, they will become fully interoperable: cross-searchable and navigable as a collection by chronology. “The space available to me here can’t do full justice to the [American Founding Era Collection]. . . . This is a powerhouse of primary-source documents. . . . A ten!” —Cheryl LaGuardia, Library Journal Go to the American Founding Era Collection See Founding Era collection statistics (updated daily)
