Illinois House Sessions to Become Available on DVD
The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that sessions of the Illinois House will be archived and sold on DVD by the House Clerk's Office. The article notes that sessions of both the Illinois House and Senate are available on the Internet, but archives do not exist otherwise. The Illinois Senate sessions will not be part of this program. Each disc will sell for $5, although there are no indications in the article about how much time will be available on each disc, or how many discs will cover a legislative day.
This development raises interesting questions about citation. As of now, the published transcripts are the only source that has official status. Will multimedia now become a source for citation as well?
