In December, Andrew Weber shared that you can now access committee meetings in a new Browse page, Committee Meetings by Date.

In this release, we are excited to migrate some of the predecessors to the Congressional Record that reported the debates of Congress. The Congressional Globe (1833-1873) and Register of Debates (1824-1837) are now available from the Browse Page in PDF. Just select a relevant Congress on the dropdown menu and you will find these collections under the “Debates of Congress” heading. Please find the full list of enhancements copied below.
