White House websites are Presidential records. The National Archives provides "frozen in time" White House websites as representations of the original websites for easy access by the public. These websites are no longer updated so links to external websites and some internal pages will not work.
The Office of the Federal Register (OFR) began publishing the Public Papers of the Presidents series in 1957 as an official publication of United States Presidents' public writings, addresses, and remarks.
The series provides an historical reference covering the administrations of Presidents Hoover, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, and Clinton. (The papers of President Franklin Roosevelt were published privately before the commencement of the official Public Papers series). Currently, volumes are published approximately twice a year, and each volume covers approximately a 6-month period.
C-SPAN is a public service created by the American cable television industry to provide C-SPAN's audience access to the live proceedings of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, and to other forums where public policy is discussed, debated and decided––all without editing, commentary or analysis and with a balanced presentation of points of view.
