Hein Online Reportedly Plans to Digitize Congressional Record, Etc.

It's been reported on the GOVDOC-L listserv that Hein Online is scheduled to release some significant collections soon, including the following:

  • Congressional Record
  • Annals of Congress
  • Register of Debates
  • Congressional Globe
  • Journals of the Continental Congress
  • American State Papers

According to the post, this collection will begin to appear in June 2007, with the remainder of Congressional Record volumes available sometime in the year 2008.


I believe you have mistaken Hein for LexisNexis.

Actually, I think that they are both coming out with the Congressional Record. This was also posted to the GOVDOC-L listserv:

In its latest step to create the most comprehensive and authoritative
online collection of congressional information available, LexisNexis(r)
announces today its plan to digitize the bound Congressional Record and
its three predecessors, including the Congressional Record (1873-to date), the Annals of Congress (1789-1824), the Register of Debates (1825-1837), and the Congressional Globe (1838-1873). The product is scheduled to launch in early 2008.
