United States Congressional Serial Set

Did you know that the U.S. Government is our nation’s largest publisher? This data, covering a broad range of topics might feel inaccessible–hidden behind complex citation styles and the ever-changing structure of our governmental agencies.

Attendees will have the opportunity to

  • Discover freely-available content for your users
  • Discuss the concept of open-access resources
  • Learn about the structure of government publications
  • Explore online tools–like FDSys, HathiTrust, and Congress.gov, A Century of Lawmaking, and other sites.
