In these volumes, known under various names, the laws passed at the annual sessions of the legislature are recorded, repealed laws are deleted, and the current laws grouped systematically by topic. Most have annotations which provide additional information on the law in question. This information may include legislative histories, references to secondary sources, notes to decisions of the Utah appellate courts, and other explanatory material. Copies of both the state and federal constitutions are also recorded in the Revised Statutes of 1898 and in The Utah Code Annotated. Other federal laws as they pertain to Utah territory are also frequently included at the beginning of volumes issued prior to 1898. The digitized versions of the publications presented in this collection have been selected, in most cases, from the Utah Code Annotated (Series 83238) held by the Utah State Archives. However, when unavailable or illegible, alternative digital copies were secured through the Google Books Library Project, digitized from the holdings of Stanford University’s Robert Crown Law Library, the Harvard Law School Library, U.C. Davis’ Mabie Law Library and the New York Public Library.
