United States Congressional Serial Set
Did you know that the U.S. Government is our nation’s largest publisher? Historical, political, economic, and genealogical gems are hidden in the US Serial Set. Our founding fathers wanted citizens to know just what the government was doing and what Congress was studying.
The US Congressional Serial Set covers a broad range of topics that appear to be inaccessible–hidden behind complex citation styles and the ever-changing structure of our governmental agencies. Learn how to find sets and reports and discover historical and congressional records that are freely available for your use.
Attendees will have the opportunity to:
- Discover freely-available content
- Learn where to find these historical and congressional government publications
- Explore online tools–like HathiTrust (especially: https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/006228203), A Century of Lawmaking, GovInfo and other sites
Presented as a hands on lecture
