Short video overviews and full handbook of common research topics

Legislative History Videos Introduction

The 3 videos in the tabbed box below discuss the following important aspects of legislative history:

  • Committee Reports
  • Learning the Congressional Record
  • Using ProQuest Legislative Insight, a database of compiled federal legislative histories

Below each video, we've included the slides used in that video.

You can also look to our Federal Legislative History Research guide for more information, or the Legislative History section of our Summer Research Handbook.

Have a question from one of the videos, a suggestion for additional videos, or any other question? Please contact us by email; via Zoom during our open hours; or request to meet with a librarian using the link from our home page.
