New eResource: HeinOnline’s US Congressional Documents Collection

We now subscribe to the US Congressional Documents collection on HeinOnline. This eresource is one of the most complete collections of these document available anywhere, and certainly the easiest to use. The collection features the complete Congressional Record bound volume set from its inception in 1873 as well as the three predecessor titles: Annals of Congress (1789-1824), Register of Debates (1824-1837) and the Congressional Globe (1833-1873). Also available are the Congressional
Record Dailies from 1980-present. Every page is fully searchable and all content is in an image-based PDF format, thus preserving the authenticity of the original documents (and making the extremely easy to retrieve and print!)

This collection also includes the following Congressional Documents:

  • Ÿ Rules & Precedents
  • Congressional Hearings (scanned from the renowned collection at the law firm Covington & Burling LLP in Washington DC)
  • Ÿ Congressional Budget Office publications
  • Ÿ And Much More!

If you doing research into American legislation or public policy, and especially if looking at legislative or regulatory history, this should be your first stop.
