In February of last year, the United States Government Publishing Office (GPO) launched the beta version of govinfo.gov, which will eventually replace the Federal Digital System (FDSys) as the GPO’s free, searchable repository of government documents. Last week the GPO announced the addition of several new features to govinfo. Here are some of the highlights:
- New links allow you to click through from Congressional Records details pages directly to related bills.
- Thumbnails are now displayed in the search results for applicable documents (which is very helpful if you are searching for photos).
- RSS feeds are now available for bills and statutes, budget and presidential materials, congressional committee materials, judicial publications, and several other types of government publications.
