White Paper

This white paper describes the methods and workflows used to create two corpora: one comprised of all North Carolina session laws from 1866/67-1967, and the other comprised of Jim Crow laws from that period identified by scholars and machine learning. The text analysis methods used to identify the Jim Crow laws are also explained.

The On the Books website is a product of a digital scholarship project and will not be maintained in perpetuity. The site will be reviewed December 31, 2024. Depending on use, funding, and maintenance required, the site may be decommissioned and archived at that time. The text corpora created for this project will be preserved in the Carolina Digital Repository.
