Published on: Author: Teresa L Leave a comment

Today the Government Printing Office released the beta model of its new Federal Digital System (FDsys). This currently holds Congressional and Presidential documents:
* Compilation of Presidential Documents (1993 to Present)
* Congressional Bills (103rd Congress to Present)
* Congressional Documents (104th Congress to Present)
* Congressional Hearings (105th Congress to Present)
* Congressional Record (1994 to Present)
* Congressional Reports (104th Congress to Present)
* Federal Register (1994 to Present)
* Public and Private Laws (104th Congress to Present)
By mid-2009, documents from all three branches will be available. FDsys will contain information gathered through files submitted by Congress and Federal agencies; information gathered from Federal agencies’ web sites; and digital files created by scanning previously printed publications.
The search interface is quite easy to use, and results are displayed to scroll through, or clustered by type and date on a side bar. Try it; it is very easy to use.
