GPO and the Law Library of Congress Embark on a Massive Digitization Effort

The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) is working with the Law Library of Congress to “digitize and make [freely] accessible volumes of the U.S. Congressional Serial Set back to the first volume, which was published in 1817.” The U.S. Congressional Serial Set “is a compilation of all numbered House and Senate reports and documents, including executive reports and treaty documents, issued for each session of Congress.”

The Serial Set features information such as maps related to exploring the West, surveys for the Pacific Railroad, presidential papers, and Boy Scouts of America annual reports. The digitization is expected to take at least 10 years to complete.

For more information, read the press release.
