This year, N.S.C.A.R. will be "Browsing History" by raising funds for the creation of James Monroe Online (JMO)
in a partnership with James Monroe’s Highland and the University of William and Mary. JMO will be a free and open
online portal to access images and searchable transcriptions of the archival collections devoted to our nation's fifth president,
James Monroe once said, "It is by a thorough knowledge of the whole subject that our fellow-citizens are enabled
to judge correctly of the past and to give a proper direction to the future."; JMO addresses what has been a major impediment
to Monroe scholarship to date by giving scholars and laypeople alike access to the comprehensive works of James Monroe in
a single free-access portal.
Please join N.S.C.A.R in digitizing the works of the last founding father. Together we can expand the legacy, knowledge,
and appreciation of James Monroe and his lifetime commitment to public service.
