2008 Comparison of Legislative Resources

A comparison of legislative resources available on GPO Access and other
Government and non-Government Web sites was recently completed. Eight
Web sites were selected for in-depth analysis including GPO Access,
THOMAS, House.gov, Senate.gov, CQ.com, HeinOnline, Lexis-Nexis
Congressional, and Westlaw. The report specifically evaluates the
availability of legislative resources on all of the databases examined,
the scope of the resources on each database, the source of those
resources (i.e., whether they house their own content or link to other
Web sites for it), and additional legislative resources or features
exclusive to comparable Web sites.
The 2008 comparison report and previous reports are available through
the Federal Bulletin Board (FBB)) at
