While most students thinks they can find any legal document on Lexis or Westlaw, we have a specialized database for Congressional material, called ProQuest Congressional. Whether you are looking for a House Report from the 1930s or a legislative history for a 1960 law, you will find it on ProQuest Congressional.
Be sure to make use of the Search by Number feature if you have the complete citation to a report or congressional publication. It’s the easiest way to retrieve the single document you are looking for.
