Committee prints are documents prepared by individual committees or commissions; they encompass a wide range of materials, including background studies, reports, bibliographies, bill analyses, etc.
♦See the Legislative History Indexes tab for details on using these indexes. ♦
1985-present, committee prints are available via FDSys.
1789-present reports are included in Proquest Congressional. The 1789-1969 reports are included in the digitized Serial Set and may be searched separately.
1970- present, the Law Library owns committee prints on microfiche in the CIS Microfiche Library. See the Legislative History Indexes tab for details on obtaining the fiche.
The Graduate Library and Buhr are excellent sources for committee prints that the Law Library does not own; beginning with the 16th Congress, House and Senate Documents can be found in the "Serial Set." Use the CIS U.S. Serial Set Index to find the specific reference to the committee print that you wish to see.
Pre-1970 committee prints are acquired by the Law Library on a selective basis. You may find committee prints by checking the MLaw Catalog under "United States. Congress. House." or "United States. Congress. Senate." followed by the name of the committee.
