The Government Printing Office is expanding the number of historic documents you can access online. They're partnering with the Library of Congress to digitize all sorts of records, some dating to the 1800s. This includes official congressional debates and laws like the Freedom of Information Act. Mary Alice Baish, GPO's Superintendent of Documents, explains the goals of the project.
