ProQuest Congressional – November Database of the Month

ProQuest Congressional ( formerly LexisNexis Congressional) has an all new look!

ProQuest Congressional is a  comprehensive collection of historic and current congressional information. Use this database to discover the original documentation that built America’s laws –  from reading expert congressional testimony, to tracing a law’s history.  Find selected full text of Congressional publications, regulations,  laws, legislative histories,  background information on members of Congress, and a bill tracking service. Also included is the Congressional Hearings Digital Collection (CHDC), a collection of published and unpublished hearings held by Congress.
