At the reference desk we often get questions about how to do legislative history research. The library has several electronic databases that can help if you’re looking for federal legislative history documents. To make these databases more accessible, we’ve created a legislative history subject guide that pulls together the resources you’ll need to do this type of research. The subject guide also provides a brief explanation about why you would use the various legislative history documents. Please feel free to come speak to the reference librarians if you have further questions or contact us online.
The library also offers a variety of other subject guides that may be helpful as you research.
