The United States Government Publishing Office (GPO) and the Office of the Federal Register (OFR) are partnering to digitize and publish historic issues of the Federal Register.
Legal researchers interested in historic issues of the Federal Register may currently access scanned images from the Library of Congress website, but this new project will make those issues searchable using the GPO's online system.
As of the date of the date of this post, the GPO and OFR have already made issues of the Federal Register published from 1990 to 1994 available online through this new project. The project plans to digitize all historic issues going back to the first issue of the Federal Register published in 1936.
Yesterday the White
House announced a series of archival projects related to “the first Social
Media presidency.” These include a searchable archive of over
250,000 social media posts from the Obama White House, a comprehensive collection of Obama GIFs,
tool that analyzes White House tweets, and complete archives of the White House’s
Twitter, Facebook, and Vine accounts. The Internet
Archive will also be making White House social media data available on its
website. You can read more about these projects here.
In related news, the Internet Archive recently launched its Trump Archive,
an ongoing project that already includes over 520 hours of video related to
President-elect Donald Trump.
