Wash­ing­ton, D.C., Feb. 18 ““ Na­tion­al Journ­al today in­tro­duced its new di­git­al Doc­u­ment Lib­rary, a one-stop search­able data­base of tens of thou­sands of doc­u­ments ag­greg­ated from a wide range of policy and polit­ics sources.

The new Na­tion­al Journ­al Doc­u­ment Lib­rary is a grow­ing col­lec­tion of re­search re­ports, testi­mon­ies, white pa­pers, and press re­leases up­dated in near real-time from the web­sites of hun­dreds of sources that in­clude glob­al gov­ern­ment agen­cies, think tanks, trade as­so­ci­ations, and aca­dem­ic and cor­por­ate in­sti­tu­tions.

“With thou­sands of doc­u­ments on polit­ics and policy from a range of au­thor­it­at­ive sources, the Doc­u­ment Lib­rary truly sets Na­tion­al Journ­al apart from its free com­pet­it­or set and of­fers a valu­able new tool for sub­scribers who fol­low is­sues in depth,” said Jes­sica Perry, vice pres­id­ent and gen­er­al man­ager of di­git­al op­er­a­tions for Na­tion­al Journ­al.  

Na­tion­al Journ­al mem­bers and sub­scribers are giv­en full ac­cess to the Doc­u­ment Lib­rary and its ad­vanced search and alert­ing fea­tures. Non-mem­bers and vis­it­ors to Na­tion­al­Journ­al.com are giv­en lim­ited ac­cess to the lib­rary.  Na­tion­al Journ­al worked with noodls, a real-time glob­al in­form­a­tion ag­greg­at­or, to cre­ate the lib­rary. 

Vis­it­ors to the free site can ac­cess the Doc­u­ment Lib­rary a num­ber of ways, in­clud­ing through Na­tion­al Journ­al‘s policy ver­tic­als (En­ergy, Tech, De­fense, and Health Care), and through the search func­tion. Mem­bers and sub­scribers can also ac­cess the data­base dir­ectly at ht­tp://www.na­tion­al­journ­al.com/lib­rary.

THE QUESTION
How Many People Protested in Philly Yesterday?
1 hours ago
THE ANSWER

About 5,500, according to official estimates. "The Monday figures marked a large increase from the protests at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, where even the largest protests only drew a couple of hundred demonstrators. But it’s a far cry from the 35,000 to 50,000 that Philadelphia city officials initially expected."

NO BATTLEGROUND STATES LEAN TRUMP

2 hours ago
THE LATEST

Only a day after FiveThirtyEight's Now Cast gave Donald Trump a 57% chance of winning, the New York Times' Upshot fires back with its own analysis that shows Hillary Clinton with a 68% chance to be the next president. Its model "calculates win probabilities for each state," which incorporate recent polls plus "a state's past election results and national polling." Notably, all of the battleground states that "vote like the country as a whole" either lean toward Clinton or are toss-ups. None lean toward Trump.
