On Thursday, Sept. 2, the Library of Congress will host a virtual public forum to provide an update on the latest enhancements to Congress.gov and to gather feedback about the site, which serves as the official, authoritative source for federal legislative information.
Building on the public forum hosted in September 2020, participants will hear from Library technology specialists, legislative information experts and data partners from across the legislative branch about new content and functionality added to Congress.gov, as well as the site’s continuous development and user experience design. A substantial portion of the forum will be dedicated to gathering public feedback and answering questions that will help inform planning for future enhancements of the site.
The virtual public forum is free and open to the public, and will take place from 1 – 4 pm ET on Thursday, Sept. 2. You can register here to participate. Please request ADA accommodations five business days in advance at 202-707-6362 or ADA@loc.gov.
Congress.gov provides access to accurate, timely and complete legislative information for members of Congress, legislative agencies and the public. It is presented by the Library of Congress using data from the Office of the Clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives, the Office of the Secretary of the Senate, the Government Publishing Office, Congressional Budget Office and the Congressional Research Service.
