Meet a Database: ProQuest Congressional
ProQuest Congressional (linked from our database page) is a collection of historic and current congressional information and is one of the best databases for legislative history information. It is available on campus or remotely with authentication (CSU ID and Pin). One great feature is compiled legislative histories, which are created through gathering and organizing into one place all documents related to the passage of an important piece of legislation. Another feature of the product is the ability to search the social media of public officials.
For more information on conducting legislative history research, see the Legislative History Research Guide.
ProQuest is also available as part of the Law Library Legal Research Seminars, which are available online via the Westlaw TWEN platform. You earn points for completing an online seminar by correctly answering 3/4 of the questions on that seminar’s quiz. When 100 points are earned, you are awarded a Law Library Legal Research Letter of Recognition and a Digital Badge, which you can post to your LinkedIn page.
