Mr. Weinstein, the new Archivist of the United States, gave the opening address at the third annual meeting of the Association of Centers for the Study of Congress. He talked about operations at the National Archives, incorporating electronic records in the collections, and working relations with scholars.

Scholars then held a panel discussion on the topic, “The State of the Art of Congressional History.” History professors discussed how researchers studied congressional proceedings and activities, how research was applied to understanding the legislative process, and materials available to congressional scholars. Following their discussion, they responded to questions and comments from members of the audience. close
