Digitized Congressional Hearings Now Available
The Wells Library and the Law Library, together, have purchased a campus-wide subscription to the LexisNexis Congressional Hearings Digital Collection.
This digital collection is divided into three modules and the library has purchased a retrospective module of both published and unpublished hearings, covering 1824–1979.
- Abstracting and indexing records
- Full-text searchable PDFs

- Hearing numbers
- Legislative numbers (bills, public laws, and Statutes at Large citations)

Hearings contain the full transcripts of the congressional committee proceedings, including all oral statements, committee questions, and discussion. They also contain texts of related reports, statistical analyses, correspondence, exhibits, and articles presented by witnesses or inserted into the record by committee members and staff.
The Congressional Hearings Digital Collection is fully integrated into LexisNexis Congressional, which is accessible from the Law Library’s Online Resources page (find it alphabetically or under the Government Resources category).
