Congress.gov

Posted on Friday, October 12, 2012

The Library of Congress, the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Government Printing Office have joined forces to create Congress.gov. Congress.gov was launched on September 19, 2012 and will eventually replace the Library of Congress’s current website, Thomas.gov.

Some of Congress.gov’s features include a faceted search menu that allows users to drill down to find information. Also, to meet the needs of mobile devise users, Congress.gov employs a devise-independent design that will expand or decrease based on screen size.

Congress.gov is currently in beta testing. It is estimated that it will remain in beta testing for a year. For more information on Congress.gov, go to http://beta.congress.gov/.
