Matthew P. Neely, Are Congressional Resources Created Equal: An Evaluation (2018), https://digitalcommons.law.uw.edu/law-lib_borgeson/84
This paper examines the four major online databases for government documents. The databases include ProQuest Congressional, HeinOnline Congressional Documents, govinfo.gov, and Congress.gov. This paper evaluates the four databases by using standardized searches to compare the search results from the different databases given a standardized data set. This paper primarily compares the item type, frequency, order, and duplication of the results. Conclusions are drawn from this data and suggestions for future research are offered. Finally, concluding lessons and practical suggestions are offered.
