The Arizona Memory Project (http://azmemory.azlibrary.gov) is a digitized collection providing access to primary sources in Arizona’s libraries, museums, archives, and other cultural institutions. The collections range from government documents, photographs, maps, to objects that chronicle Arizona’s past and present. Here are some collections that may help legal researchers:
This collection contains about 37 appellate briefs filed in 1982 and 1983.
This collection provides researchers with the attorney general opinions issued prior to 1999. The attorney general opinions from 1999 to 2014 are available at the Attorney General’s website.
[Technically, this is not a part of the Arizona Memory Project; This is a separate project by the Arizona State Library.]
ADNP is a digitized collection of Arizona newspapers from 1859-1922. Researchers looking for historical documentations of Arizona may find this helpful.
The records in this collection date back to 1860s. The government records included here represents a very small portion of the records at the Arizona State Archives. Thus, if this collection does not show what you are looking for, please visit http://www.azlibrary.gov/arm or contact Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records.
Arizona Memory Project has features that enable researchers to search for oral history collections, maps collections, government publication collections. For example, if you click the search button next to “search government publication collections,” the database will automatically select the collections related to government publication.
The “Popular Items” box contains links to annual reports, legislative study committee reports, House received reports, and Senate received reports. This would be a good resource for those looking for Arizona legislative history materials.
The Arizona Memory Project features historical materials featuring a variety of topics. It is free, and materials are added to the collections regularly.
