Get Iran-Contra Revelations on Your Smartphone
Remember the Iran-Contra Affair? How about the fall of the Berlin Wall? These historic events and many others were discussed and debated by Congress in the 1980s, and all of those proceedings were captured in the "Congressional Record," printed by the U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO). But who wants to page through those volumes to get the details?
Now, thanks to a GPO partnership with the Library of Congress (LC), every word from those '80s-era "Congressional Record" volumes has been digitized and is available to the public. This release covers debates and proceedings of the 98th thru the 101st Congresses from 1981-1990, spanning Ronald Reagan’s Presidency plus the first two years of George H.W. Bush’s Presidency. This era of Congress covered historical topics such as:
- The Strategic Defense Initiative
- The Space Shuttle program
- The Iran-Contra Affair
- The end of the Berlin Wall and the Cold War
- The Americans with Disabilities Act
This release follows the digital dissemination of the 1990s "Congressional Record" by GPO and LC in September. They will continue to collaborate on this important project and release digital versions of the bound "Congressional Record" back to the first one published by GPO on March 5, 1873. GPO publishes the "Congressional Record" in print and digitally on govinfo.gov every day Congress is in session.
"The digital versions of the 'Congressional Record' now gives the public easy access to the historic debates of Congress on smartphones, tablets, laptops and personal computers," says GPO Director Davita Vance-Cooks. "GPO is honored to partner with the Library of Congress to continue to meet the needs of Congress and the American people."
