New electronic resource: Congressional Record (and predecessors)
We're delighted to announce that we now have full text access to the electronic archives of the Congressional Record and its predecessors via ProQuest. This archive covers over 200 years of activities in Congress, from 1789-1999, including the verbatim text of debates in both the House and Senate from the beginning of the Congressional Record in 1873 onwards.
The Vere Harmsworth Library is the University of Oxford's main research library for US Studies. Located in the Rothermere American Institute, our collection focuses predominantly on the history (social, political and economic) of the United States from Colonial times to the present day.
