Library of Congress: Announcing the Library of Congress Congressional Data Challenge

Library of Congress: Announcing the Library of Congress Congressional Data Challenge. “Today we launch a Congressional Data Challenge, a competition asking participants to leverage legislative data sets on congress.gov and other platforms to develop digital projects that analyze, interpret or share congressional data in user-friendly ways. ‘There is so much information now available online about our legislative process, and that is a great thing,’ said Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden. ‘But it can also be overwhelming and sometimes intimidating. We are asking citizen coders to explore ways to analyze, interpret or share this information in user-friendly ways. I hope this challenge will spark an interest in the legislative process and also a spirit of information sharing by the tech-savvy and digital humanities pioneers who answer the call. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.’ “
