THOMAS was launched in January of 1995, at the inception of the 104th Congress. The leadership of the 104th Congress directed the Library of Congress to make federal legislative information freely available to the public. Since that time THOMAS has expanded the scope of its offerings to include the features and content listed below.
Includes all congressional documents available in electronic format, 1985 to present, in text or PDF formats. Note: there are three types of documents: House and Senate Documents; Senate Executive Documents; and Senate Treaty Documents.
Transcripts of all discussion and debate from the floor of Congress. Note: SU Library has all of the Congressional Record (and its predecessors) on microfiche in the Maps and Government Information Department, 3rd floor Bird Library.
