Finding Old Web Site Information

Suppose you wanted to know what a Senator thought of a policy issue and you can't find any news coverage or floor debate. Perhaps they posted an issue statement on their web site. But what if you wanted to know what they thought in 2009? You need an archived version of their site from that date -- that is what the Way Back Machine from the Internet Archive can provide.

For example, put in a senator's web site:

www.name.senate.gov

...then browse to the relevant time using the timeline at the top.
