Look for current Congressional publications at

For older publications try the following:

  • -- official full-text back to 1995.  
  • Congressional Record -- full-text debates back to 1951
  • HeinOnline -- full-text back to 1817 when available
  • HathiTrust -- full-text when available
  • WorldCat (catalog) -- contains links to full-text at government websites, HeinOnline, and HathiTrust
  • Libraries' Search tool (catalog) -- contains links to full-text at government websites

The Libraries have print Congressional publications in the Federal Depository Library Collection, sometimes going back to the 1960s. Many of these materials from 1976 forward can be identified through the Libraries' Search tool. 

The Libraries have the U.S. Congressional Serial Set in print for the 89th Congress (1966) through the 104th Congress (1996) at:  J 85 Y 1.2: This set is significant because it brings together most Senate and House documents and reports. 

Consult the Libraries' Congress research guide for additional suggestions or ask Reference & Government Information Librarian Karina Ricker for assistance.
