GPO and Library of Congress Begin Release of All Digital Bound “Congressional Records”
From the Government Publishing Office:
The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) partners with the Library of Congress (LC) to release the digital bound Congressional Records from 1991-1998 on GPO’s govinfo.
This release covers debates of the 102nd thru 105th Congresses. This era of Congress covers historical topics such as:
- The Persian Gulf War
- Bill Clinton’s Presidency
- Enactment of the Family and Medical Leave Act
- Republicans gaining control of both the House and Senate since 1954
GPO and LC will continue to collaborate on this important project and release digital versions of the bound Congressional Record back to the first one published by GPO on March 5, 1873.
