New: GPO Creates Its First Ever On-Line Guide To Members Of Congress

GPO Creates Its First Ever On-Line Guide To Members Of Congress

From the announcement:

The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) creates a one stop website with easy searchable information on all Members of Congress. A simple click will bring the user to a picture and biography of any current member of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate. This information previously was available in separate databases, but now can be accessed from one central point. GPO worked closely with the Joint Committee on Printing (JCP), Clerk of the House and Secretary of Senate on the design and usability of this website.

"This is great news for the public and Congress," said Public Printer Robert C. Tapella. "This directory is an example of how GPO is using
new technology and publishing trends in creating a first class, easy to navigate website. I want to thank our colleagues in Congress, employees in GPO's Digital Media, Creative Services and Information, Technology and Security departments for all of their hard work in completing this project."

All House Members' offices will have access to submit updates at any time. Updates for Members of the Senate will be funneled through one
main administrative person. To ensure secure access, registration and log-in is required. Security checks are in place to identify that the
person signing in is a valid user.
