Tiny Thomas: Making Thomas dot Gov Links Short and Stable


No, this is a not a blog post about how people in other English-speaking countries find our use of the English language – they think we are hilarious. And they are right!

(Of course, this isn’t to say that we don’t return the compliment: Our Australian and British and Scottish and Irish earth-mates leave us in stitches.)

Now, about Tiny Thomas: This is a post about a U.S. Congress website, specifically, the official website of said body: Thomas dot gov or Thomas dot loc dot gov (whichever takes your fancy).

I first found the Tiny Thomas story at the Legal Research Plus blog: New Resource: Tiny URLs for Links from the Library of Congress’ THOMAS System, November 19, 2009, by George Wilson
