THOMAS.gov, the Library of Congress' website for legislative information, will retire on July 5th. THOMAS was launched in 1995 and came out of a bipartisan initiative. It allowed anyone with a computer and a modem free access to information like the text of Congressional bills.
After upgrades, new interfaces, increased access and many years of helping researchers, THOMAS.gov has been replaced by Congress.gov. With its modern infrastructure, Congress.gov offers mobile friendly access and faceted searching. It still provides the text of Congressional bills, bill status, committee reports and the Congressional Record. It has member data and committee profile pages and includes such content as video of select committee hearings.
