Thursday, November 08, 2007 for Hard to Find Documents, set to launch today, provides
access to difficult to find government documents.

Researchers can "browse, search, and review hundreds of
thousands of pages acquired through the Freedom of
Information Act (FOIA) and other public disclosure, or
'sunshine,' laws...A key feature of the site is that every
document, while provided in PDF, is also run through an
OCR process so that its text is fully searchable."

The primary backer of the site is Citizens for Responsibility
and Ethics in Washington (CREW), with support from the
Project on Government Oversight, Public Citizen, Electronic
Frontier Foundation and the Sunlight Foundation.
