The Library of Congress is feeling very confident about the IT improvements it has made in recent years. During a November 7 Senate hearing, Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden said her organization has “significantly improved” its situation since a 2015 Government Accountability Office audit called out “significant weaknesses” in the library’s IT management. To date, Hayden said, the library has closed “nearly 95%” of the GAO’s 31 public recommendations. It intends to close out the remaining percentage by the end of this fiscal year. The library has six remaining GAO recommendations to deal with.
