Government documents – free to a good home!

Hunt Reference is in the process of de-accessioning some government documents that are available full text in the ProQuest Congressional database. The first group of these are some volumes of the Senate and House Journals ca. 1800s, and then various Senate and House Documents ca. 1940-1975 (not complete). These are NOT the hearings or committee prints.

A report is a document that presents a committee’s explanation of its action regarding legislation that has been referred to it. Congressional documents originate from congressional committees, cover a wide variety of topics and may include reports of executive departments and independent organizations, reports of special investigations made for Congress, and annual reports of non-governmental organizations. [definitions from GPO Access].

If you would like any of the available documents, please contact Sue Collins, sc24@andrew.cmu.edu, by end of business Thursday, November 10, 2011.
