LexisNexis Congressional is a comprehensive index and selected full-text source for Congressional publications, including hearings, reports, and documents. The database is updated daily and provides coverage of Congressional materials from 1789-present. Full text availability varies with the type of material being researched. It also features information about Congressional members, history, and current issues. The link to “Political News” and “Hot Topics” supplies the most current data on important and time sensitive issues that the country is dealing with. The “Help Toolbox” aids the researcher with instructions on subjects such as “About the Legislative Process ” and “How to Cite Electronic Publications”.
