The Hartford Courant recently featured an article on the State Library’s WPA Art Inventory Project – “A Depression Era Mystery: About 150 Artists In State Created 5,029 WPA Works, But Whereabouts Of Many Uncertain” (7/29/08). The project, which seeks to inventory approximately 5,000 pieces of art created under the WPA in Connecticut in the 1930s, cannot be completed without the public’s help. More information is needed by State Archivist Mark Jones about the artwork created under the WPA and the artists who created it. If you would like to help, please contact Mark Jones at mjones@cslib.org or (860) 757-6511 with questions, stories, remembrances, and recent sightings. For more information on the project, see http://www.cslib.org/archives/wpaartannounce.htm

One of the newest additions to our HeinOnline subscription is the U.S. Congressional Documents Library.  This database of congressional material features both bound and daily versions of the Congressional Record in its variety of titles.  The American State Papers provides access to the legislative executive documents of the first fourteen Congresses from 1789 to 1838.  The Journals of the Continental Congress are the daily proceedings of the Continental Congress.  The time period covered includes the adoption of several historic documents such as the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution.  There are multiple searching options available such as searching a member of Congress by name, searching by rollcall vote and of course searching by title, bill number and citation.  Check out the list of External Links for detailed information for selected databases.
