In the past, the Congressional Record and its predecessors have been some of the most difficult government resources to use due to complexities and variations in their publication patterns and have largely been untapped by all but the most dedicated of researchers. That has now changed with the creation of the definitive digital edition from ProQuest.

ProQuest Congressional Record Permanent Digital Collection, offering unprecedented access to the authoritative digital full text of all four of these titles—the Congressional Record, Annals of Congress, the Register of Debates, and the Congressional Globe—provide researchers with a new perspective on American history, society, and politics. Not only will researchers be able to easily track legislative activities, they will also discover historically rich content inserted into the Record, including the text of bills, amendments to resolutions, roll call votes, conference reports, debates, correspondence to foreign governments from Cabinet secretaries, and much more.
