Congress in the Stanford Libraries

The Stanford University Libraries congressional related collection includes publications by and about the United States Congress. The library has been a federal depository library since 1895 and has also systematically collected non-depository documents including substantial microform sets. Primary sources include full text of congressional bills/resolutions both passed and not passed, congressional committee hearings/testimonies, prints, documents and reports, floor debates, proceedings, journals, directories and biographies, manuals, election and voting data, and publications of the congressional support agencies. Official documents include those issued by the full congress, the committees, and the legislative, executive and judicial bodies. The collection also includes materials issued by political parties, and legislators as individuals or as group members.

This information is available in print, microforms, audiovisuals, maps, computer tapes, cdroms, and databases. Bibliographic access is provided through the online databases. Many of these database include full text documents. In additional, the library provides access through separate print, microform, and cdrom indexes.

The Stanford Libraries maintains a strong collection of secondary source materials on and about the congress and its members in all formats. These sources include bibliographies, biographies, books, data, dictionaries, encyclopedias and almanacs, handbooks, indexes, journals and periodicals, maps, and newspapers. Most publications are listed in Socrates.
