Purchased jointly by Central University Libraries and the Underwood Law Library, the U.S. Serial Set digitized collection begins in 1789 with the American State Papers and details Congressional business through 1969. It includes reports and documents either produced or ordered by Congress, as well as presidential communications and treaty materials. Of particular importance to those who study law, the Serial Set contains Congressional legislative reports that provide unrivaled insight into the legislative intent of laws enacted before 1969. This collection of government publications captures key aspects of American life from the early 19th century onward and is relevant for research in the fields of history, business, political science, sociology, and more.
