Catalyst Fund Webinar Series: Access to US Congressional Correspondence Data (Lyrasis)

Constituent correspondence with the U.S. Congress captures the interactions between Americans and their elected representatives. Congress manages correspondence with proprietary systems, and data exported from these systems is donated to libraries across the country. The complexity, format, and sensitive nature of the exported data have posed challenges for repositories. No repository has processed these large data sets in a replicable way, and without a concerted effort, data is at risk of disappearing. The America Contacts Congress project, funded by a LYRASIS Catalyst Fund grant, provides a roadmap for preserving and providing access to this unique resource.
