The Colonial Connecticut Records (CCR) project is an initiative of the University of Connecticut Libraries and supported by the Mashantucket Pequot Museum & Research Center. CCR effectively scanned images of all fifteen volumes (via microfilmed copies) of the 19th century publications owned by the Libraries. One can browse names and topics via an A-Z subject index for each volume individually, search by date, or search by volume and page number. The complexities caused by inconsistent spellings has thus far prevented implementation of full-text and keyword access, but the browse list is quite extensive. Other handy features include the ability to download TIFFs (300 dpi) of each page image and the ability to retrieve groups or classes of documents (Charters, Documents, Laws, etc.). Overall, this is a wonderful tool for historians of Colonial American History. Given the target audience, one oddity is the lack of specific bibliographic information on the source material. To remedy this problem, this reviewer discovered this entry in the University of Connecticut Libraries online catalog : "The public records of the Colony of Connecticut ..."; published by Hartford, Brown & Parsons, 1850-1890; Vols. 1-3 edited by J. H. Trumbull; v. 4-15, by C. J. Hoadly.
