Types of Publications
ProQuest® Congressional provides the user with access to a comprehensive collection of congressional publications.
A results record is provided for each publication. The content of these records varies by publication type, but always includes full bibliographic information and indexing. The availability of full text varies. Available full text may be accessed from the results records.
Full text availability
The availability of full text publications varies according to the purchase/subscription arrangement of individual institutions. Available full text may be accessed from the results records. All results records also provide you with sufficient information to locate paper or microfiche copies of the source documents within the library.
In general, the collection is updated on a monthly basis, except for CRS reports which are typically added twice a week. Temporary records for hearings are provided within a day or two of the daily Congressional Record notice that a hearing has been held, and early records for House and Senate reports and documents are provided on as timely a basis as possible after the publications are issued. Temporary results records and early results records are replaced as soon as possible with full results records.
