Thank you for visiting the Library of Congress.
Many questions received by the Library of Congress can
be answered by using local libraries. If your question can be
addressed through the use of a local library or by consulting
information listed on the following screens, we will not provide
an additional response to your correspondence.
LOCIS: A BIBLIOGRAPHIC CATALOG, NOT FULL-TEXT
The files available through LOCIS provide bibliographic
and citation information only. The full text of books
and journal articles is not available online from LOCIS.
There are some projects on the Internet that make books
available in full text. For information on these and other
Internet resources, please consult one of the many guides to
the Internet available through bookstores or available via
ERRORS/MALFUNCTIONS ON LIBRARY WEB SITES
We appreciate hearing from you when you identify
errors in material which the Library of Congress has
developed and mounted on the Internet.
Many malfunctions are temporary and may clear up shortly.
Please try again and alert us of any repetitive problems
in using Library of Congress Web sites.
INFORMATION AT NON-LC WEB SITES
The Library of Congress Web and Gopher services
(LC WEB and LC MARVEL) provide links to materials and sites
which are not maintained by the Library of Congress. In
providing this service, the Library of Congress cannot accept
responsibility for the accuracy or the completeness of
information found at other Web or Gopher sites. We suggest that
you identify the source of the material and send a comment or
suggestion. Thank you for your interest in correcting
information found on the Internet.
A) via THOMAS
In support of the Congress, the Library manages a World
Wide Web resource known as THOMAS, which has full text
federal legislation for the 103rd and 104th Congresses,
as well as full text of the Congressional Record for
those years, and pointers to other Internet resources
relating to federal legislation. The URL for THOMAS is:
B) via LOCIS (Federal Legislation)
The primary purpose of the legislative files is to be up
to date with the current status of bills. Although
the legislative files offer a substantial amount of
information, the full texts of bills and laws are not
generally available online from LOCIS. When time permits,
in the current Congress, the full text of a law may be
keyed in and available for searching. The URL for LOCIS is:
In addition, please note that voting records of individual
members of Congress are not included in the LOCIS
legislative files. The dates and totals of votes are
recorded; the Congressional Record, available in local
depository and some other libraries, records how
individual members voted.
C) Other Resources
There are several other sources, not associated with the
Library of Congress, that provide machine-readable versions
of full-text Congressional documents; some are on cd-rom
and some are online. Consult a library for names and
locations of these sources.
Print copies of federal legislative publications may be
found in federal depository libraries; a local library
can help you determine the nearest depository library.
In addition, legislative publications may be requested
from your Representative or Senator, or from the
Document Rooms of the Senate and House of Representatives.
