Congressional Hearings

www.loc.gov/law/find/hearings.html

Google and The Library of Congress have teamed up to digitize the library’s Congressional Hearings holdings.  They have only begun, but three collections are currently available for browsing: U.S. Census, Freedom of Information/Privacy, and Immigration.  Others will be added as they become available.

UNdata

From The Scout Report:

http://data.un.org

“The United Nations (UN) website contains a tremendous amount of data, and for some new users (and even those who are more experienced), it may be a bit overwhelming. Recently, the UN created this fine website designed to assist those who might need a bit of assistance with this whole process. On the UN Data site, visitors can simply type in their search terms, look over a list of popular searches, and even take a look at their ‘News’ section, which offers up a selection of helpful recent additions. Further down on the homepage, visitors can look through the ‘Database Coverage’ area. Here they can take advantage of some specially culled statistics, including data sets related to the World Health Organization (WHO), refugees, industrial commodities, and children. The site is rounded out by a ‘Glossary’ section, which offers a nice summary of each term that might be encountered while utilizing the site.”
