Proquest Quick Start: US Serial Set Digital Collection

The U.S. Serial Set, a collection of U.S. Government publications compiled under the directive of Congress, captures every aspect of American life from the early 19th century onward:  farming, westward expansion, scientific exploration, politics, international relations, business, and manufacturing. It includes Congressional reports and documents as well as executive agency and departmental reports ordered to be printed by Congress.

The collection contains over 325,000 documents totaling approximately 11 million pages.

Coverage from 1789-1969, including the American State Papers, and all maps, illustrations, photos, and lithographs found within the U.S. Serial Set during that time period.  1789-1954 are also available in opaque microform, AW 10 U48 Koerner Library Microforms.
