The Patrick Henry Digital Library is composed of four parts. The first part is the Patrick Henry Digital Edition, which is the first comprehensive scholarly edition of the known writings of Patrick Henry. The second part is Patrick Henry's Library which is a collection of book titles that Henry was known to have owned at one time in his life. The third part is Books about Patrick Henry. The fourth and final part is Museum Collections. The overall objective of the Patrick Henry Digital Library is to connect related objects across these four collections in order to provide users a more comprehensive look at what Patrick Henry wrote, read, and used in his daily life, and the works written about him since his death in 1799.
