FDA 1906-1963 Documents Digitized

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced the availability of the FDA Notices of Judgment Collection, 1906-1963.

The FDA Notices of Judgment Collection is a digital archive of the published notices judgment for products seized under authority of the 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act. The NJs are resources in themselves but also lead users to the over 2,000 linear foot collection of evidence files used to prosecute each case. The evidence files are a rich documentary resource filled with legal correspondence, lab reports and data, photographs, and product labeling and containers. This digital library, created using the SPER system, allows for browsing the collection as well as searching the collection’s metadata and full-text.

Currently only the Drugs and Devices portion of the collection is available in the digital library. As we complete work on other portions those will be released on an ongoing basis. Users are welcome to visit NLM to use the hard copies at any time.

The collection uses DSpace and provides technical information about the project: System For Preservation of Electronic Resources (SPER).
