How do I find testimony from a hearing?

Testimony occurs when witnesses testify at a committee hearing before a full committee or a subcommittee. Most testimony will be found within the "hearings" publication type, but the other publication types sometimes include hearings testimony as well.

To access testimony, search using the Basic Search Form (Congressional Publications) or Advanced Search Form (Congressional Publications) forms. The Advanced Search form allows you to restrict the search by publication type and permits searches limited to subject, witness name, or witness affiliation.

The Basic Search and the Advanced Search default will return results records linked to testimony transcripts and witnesses’ written statements. The Advanced Search drop-down list option "All Fields Including Full Text" will go directly to the metadata or the transcripts and written statements. The advantage of accessing the results record first is that the record provides bibliographic and content information that will help make sense of the testimony materials.
