New or Improved Databases With U.S. Government Information

by , Comments

A brief post to point out one new and one updated compilation of databases, that might be of value to people tying to find U.S. government information.

The AP article, Archives Smooths Web Access to Records reports on major improvements made to a set of databases named, Access to Archival Databases, from the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). Now, instead of having to search each database (or in NARA terms,
"data files") individually, you can free-text search all of the databases simultaneously. Fielded searching of individual databases remains available. Hundreds of "data files" are available, everything from Records on World War II Prisoners of War to Records About Worker-Initiated Strikes and Employer-Initiated Lockouts, created, 1953 - 1981. The new browsable directory of files is also a MAJOR improvement.

Over on ResourceShelf, Steven Cohen provides a look at a new database from the Washington Post with U.S. Congress voting records back to 1991.
