Official Retirement Date Announced for THOMAS

The Library of Congress announced today that it will retire the THOMAS.gov website on July 5. Named for Thomas Jefferson, THOMAS was launched in 1995 to provide online access to federal legislative information, including bills and resolutions, treaties, voting results, and the Congressional Record. In 2012 the Library of Congress began the transition from THOMAS to Congress.gov, which features a more modern design and increased functionality. During the transition period, both sites have remained online, but as of July 5 the transition will be complete and THOMAS will be officially retired.

For more information, see the announcement on the Library of Congress website or this post from In Custodia Legis, the official blog of the Law Librarians of Congress.
