Lunch and Learn Webinar Series: Federal Legislative History Research
The Lunch and Learn Webinar Series, offered by the Law Library of Congress, is a collections-focused webinar series that will be particularly interesting to people researching U.S. government documents.
This entry in the series, Federal Legislative History Research, will touch on how to find debates, hearings, reports, and other documents that may reflect legislative intent regarding a bill as it moves through Congress. We will first determine what kind of documents are considered “legislative history” resources, and then explore methods of identifying and locating these items. In tackling this area of research, the focus will largely be on finding these documents online. We will be highlighting freely-available governmental websites like Congress.gov, govinfo, and Law.gov, and quickly touching on subscription databases that can be accessed at one’s local public law or academic library.
