Improvments to Thomas, Federal Legislative Website

Thomas, "Legislative Information on the Internet" from the Library of Congress, will begin receiving an update later this month that will, among other things, add the following new features:

■ Improved visual appearance.
■ Headers, footers and other links for easy navigation.
■ A left-side menu for quick access to main content sections.
■ Ability to browse legislation by sponsor.
■ Links to Senate hearings for nominations.
■ Links to legislative resources and learning activities.
■ A new help section.
■ Links to the full text of treaties.

According to an article on FCW.COM, the expanded features will allow Thomas users "to easily search records from previous congressional sessions and browse legislation by sponsor."
