Washington –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:

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. GPO publishes the Congressional Record in print and digitally on govinfo every day Congress is in session.

“The digital versions of the Congressional Record now gives the public easy access to the historic debates of Congress on smartphones, tablets, laptops and personal computers,” said GPO Director Davita Vance-Cooks. “GPO is honored to partner with the Library of Congress to continue to meet the needs of Congress and the American people.”
