Federal Register 2.0

The National Archives and Records Administration celebrated the 75th anniversary of the Federal Register on July 26 by launching a beta “Federal Register 2.0” site. The attractive new site features broad categories of documents in the areas of Money, Environment, World, Science and Technology, Business and Industry, and Health and Public Welfare.

A “What’s Hot” feature on the front page points visitors to the most frequently viewed documents, and documents with open comment periods prominently display submission deadlines.

The site currently displays a disclaimer cautioning that “[t]he content posted on this site, taken from the daily Federal Register (FR), is not an official, legal edition of the FR; it does
not replace the official print or electronic versions of the FR.”  Fortunately, each document posted on the beta site includes a link to the corresponding official FR PDF file.

Check it out at http://www.federalregister.gov/.
