Over time the Library is adding digital pieces to the historical legislative record. We recently finished scanning older print issues of the Senate Briefly publication back to 1985. We also have 1978-1984 on microfiche, so perhaps in the future we can convert those to post online.
The issues are connected to the Library's Legislative Time Capsule pages, to help researchers looking in to the activities of the Legislature during earlier sessions. Senate Briefly is an important record of the activities of Senators and Senate committees. For example, the January 13, 1995, issue heralded the availability of legislative information online through the brand-new legislative gopher. Also, the Rules and Administration Ad Hoc Subcommittee on Senate Information Systems approved a proposal to provide Internet e-mail addresses for senators. Who would have imagined a future with Facebook and Twitter?
