Publications at a Glance
Since 1789 the manner in which Congress has operated and the ways in which its various activities have been documented have evolved a great deal.A few points to keep in mind:
The time period you are interested in and the types of publications you need will determine the format of the material you will be using (electronic, print, or fiche).
However, more and more material is available online, both in public and subscription databases.
