Rochester’s InfoPreserve Inc. has reached an agreement with the New York State Unified Court System and the Buffalo Law Library to provide a private cloud solution for a New York Codes, Rules and Regulations digital archive.

The deal will make the NYCRR’s archives, which includes all of the state’s regulatory history from 1945 to 2001, available online to the public for the first time. InfoPreserve, which provides clouds solutions for document management, will scan documents, creating a free, web-based system that is fully searchable.

Law libraries participating in the project include the Charles B. Sears Law Library at SUNY Buffalo, the 8th JD Law Library of Buffalo and the Appellate Division Fourth Department Law Library in Rochester.

Using InfoPreserve's forensic search system, the public will be able to locate documents based on their content and title, using several devices, including laptops, smartphones and tablets.

“Research that could have taken hours with a team can be accomplished in seconds; instead of going to the library to search through printed texts, the search can be completed from anywhere via an Internet connection; a true advantage that will save time and money,” said John Chapman, CEO of InfoPreserve. “With our forensic search capabilities, all relevant documents can be found quickly even when you have very little information about them.”
