Library of Congress Launches Website to Search CRS Reports

The Library of Congress (LOC) has launched their new website to search Congressional Research Service (CRS) Reports. This website was developed after the passage of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018, which directed the LOC to make CRS Reports publicly available online. Before this, researchers would have to look in several different places in order to try and find the reports that are developed for Congress. The initial release of materials will include all R-series “active” reports that have been published since the passage of the Appropriations Act. A full migration of reports is estimated for completion in the Spring of 2019. More information can be found on the site’s FAQ page.

Chair Update: Improvements to the Vendor Relations Page

The CRIV Web Committee is looking at improving the Vendor Relations page.  We have added explanations to the page and had the content alphabetized.  We did the same for the CRIV Tools page.  We are also currently working to update the links on the Vendor Contact Information page. 

The next task of the committee is to look at the content of each page and editing or adding new content as necessary.

CRIV would like to thank Chris Siwa for his assistance with our work. 

To look at the changes go to the following places:
