by Sabrina I. Pacifici on November 24, 2004

Announcement on upcoming release of new design for THOMAS: An Updated THOMAS – The 109th Congress convenes at noon on January 4, 2005. In preparation for that, we have been working to improve the appearance and the usefulness of THOMAS, the Library of Congress’ public legislative information system. We expect the updated site to be released on January 4, but in the meantime we invite you to preview the updated THOMAS. Please note that the pages below are for information and illustration only. Searches and links on the pages do not work. Here are illustrations of the major changes:”

  • The homepage, with better organized links and with the addition of two new features.
  • a link to the latest issue of the Daily Digest
  • a search for most recent legislative action (“Action Yesterday”)
  • Combination of Bill Text and Bill Summary & Status links into a single Bills & Resolutions page for simple, basic searches
  • Combination of all Congressional Record and Congressional Record Index links into one page
  • Addition of the capability to search Bill Text across multiple Congresses
