Lexis, Westlaw, and Thomas have the Congressional Record back to the
1980s.  Library of Congress American Memory plans to digitize the CR's
predecessor, the Congressional Globe.  I do not believe that any other
time periods of the CR are available online.  For the future, I would bet
that Congressional Universe or American Memory will eventually have the
complete CR digitized, but I don't know how when this will happen.
