Congressional Research Service Reports Archive

From the GovDoc-L listserv:

The University of North Texas Libraries recently announced the availability of a new online archive of Congressional Research Service Reports. The site provides integrated, searchable access to many of the full-text CRS reports that have been available on the Web since 1990. Thus far over 6500 reports have been captured, on topics ranging from Terrorism and Foreign Policy to Medicare and Social Security.

The Congressional Research Service (CRS) serves as the public policy research arm of Congress, and works exclusively for Members, their committees and staff. CRS does not provide direct public access to the numerous reports it produces each year, although some Members, as well as several non-profit groups, post a select group of the reports on their Web sites. In the past, citizens who wished to view these reports had to request them from their Member of Congress.


Thanks to Bill Ebbott for pointing this out.
