Committe Prints

During the mid-1970’s Committee Prints became depository publications and were distributed more widely. The best source for finding Committee Prints is Proquest Congressional where full text of Committee Prints from 1830 to the present are available. Committee prints are also available in the U.S. Serial Set, the Congressional Record, and the Major Studies and Issue Briefs of the Congressional Research Service. Often, the Supplementary Catalog can help to find these materials. Some are cataloged under "U.S. Congress, Senate/House, Committee Name, Miscellaneous Committee Prints". Committee Prints from the 105th Congress to the present are available via FDsys.
