Documents for Select Supreme Court Nominees

The Library of Congress has the documents for select Supreme Court nominees who were confirmed at the following link: http://www.loc.gov/law/find/court-confirmed.php
Documents that are available vary depending on the individual Judicial Nominee but can include the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing committee transcripts, Congressional Record debate reflecting the debate that took place on the floor of the Senate, roll call confirmation votes, floor statements, and Executive Reports. This is significant because the documents for a number of the nominees such as Justice Sandra Day O'Connor are not readily available through other online sources in full text. Documents are also available for select nominees who were unsuccessful in the confirmation process by clicking the "Nominees Not Confirmed" link.
