Online Access to Legislative and Executive Branch Materials

The Law Center’s ProQuest subscription now includes two new sets of content: Legislative Insight and Executive Branch Documents.

ProQuest’s Legislative Insight database compiles more than 18,000 histories covering enacted laws from 1929 to the present. These histories include photostatic PDF versions of the Public Law, all versions of enacted and related bills, Congressional Record excerpts, and committee hearings, reports, and documents. Template searching provides options for finding histories with Public Law numbers, Statute at Large citations, or bill numbers. It is a unparalleled resource for anyone performing comprehensive legislative history research.

Legislative Insight

The Executive Branch Documents collection provides a complete annotated bibliography and full text of all Executive Branch Documents listed in the Checklist of Public Documents, 1789-1909, indexed by subjects, names, agency report numbers, and SuDocs Classification, as well as new documents from 1910-1932. The whole library of searchable PDFs can be accessed from the Advanced Search link on the ProQuest Congressional home page. ProQuest has created a comprehensive research guide about the Executive Branch Documents collection that is a great starting point for anyone using this database.

Executive Documents
