Update: Trial access to US Congressional Serial Set and American State Papers

Further to the announcement a couple of weeks ago about trial access to the Congressional Serial Set, we are now also running a second trial to the same content via a different provider. Both trials will run until 30 November.
  • US Congressional Serial Set, 1817-1980, + American State Papers (Readex)
  • US Congressional Serial Set, 1817-1969, + American State Papers (Lexis Nexis)

They can both be accessed via OxLIP+. The Lexis Nexis version requires an additional password; follow the instructions in the legend on OxLIP+.

This resource provides comprehensive, full-text access to over 337,000 Congressional and Executive branch documents and reports published in over 13,000 volumes of the US Congressional Serial Set. However, search options vary significantly between the two providers. Please let Isabel Holowaty ( or Jane Rawson ( know your feedback and preferences, preferably by 9 November.
