GPO and Library of Congress to Digitize Historic Documents

By Theresa Cramer

From the press release:

The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) and Library of Congress (LOC) are collaborating to digitize some of our nation's most important legal and legislative documents after receiving approval from the Joint Committee on Printing (JCP). The digitization project will include the public and private laws, and proposed constitutional amendments passed by Congress as published in the official Statutes at Large from 1951-2002. GPO and LOC will also work on digitizing official debates of Congress from the permanent volumes of the Congressional Record from 1873-1998.  These laws and documents will be authenticated and available to the public on GPO's Federal Digital System (FDsys) and the Library of Congress's THOMAS legislative information system.
