This database contains Congressional Research Service reports and Congressional Committee Prints. These reports are intended to provide Congress with information related to policy making, covering a very wide variety of topics. The documents are prepared to be objective, unbiased, concise, and easy to read. Each document is in fully searchable PDF format, with subject indexing terms. Coverage dates for the trial are 1830 to present for the Committee Prints, and 1916 to present for the Congressional Research Service reports. There is a subscription option to this database for coverage of 2004 to present.

  1. Although the historical depth of the LexisNexis archive is remarkable, on the off chance we don’t end up subscribing I’d like to mention that thousands of publicly released Congressional Research Service reports have been gathered, published and indexed for free at http://opencrs.com/ which also links to other free collections of CRS reports online. These are excellent reports!
