Trial e-Resource - Congressional Hearings Digital Collection

We have a free trial of Proquest's Congressional Hearings Digital Collection database, until 30 November 2011.

A Username and Password are required for access - please get in touch to request these (University staff and students only).

This resource contains the full-text of all published U.S. Congressional hearings held, from 1824 - present. It also contains unpublished hearings held prior to 1973 (House), and prior to 1984 (Senate).

Hearings cover a wide range of topics, including foreign and domestic policy, science and technology, medicine, national defence, business, and social issues. They contain full transcripts of the proceedings, including oral and written statements, question and answer sessions with Members of Congress, discussions, and other material such as articles, reports, correspondence, etc.

This resource forms an unparalleled documentary record of events and public policy issues faced by America, as well as the objectives and actions of Congress in dealing with these.
