The Congressional Record, remarkable in its size and content, is a unique source of American public documentation. Nearly all the major and minor policies and concerns of the day are discussed, debated, and decided in its pages. In the world of congressional documentation, the Record is the title that resonates with researches and novices alike as one of the most important historical documents and as a key primary source in the study of American social, political, economic, and foreign policies.
The Record and its predecessors, the Annals of Congress, the Register of Debates and the congressional Globe, span debate for over 200 years in 2,000 volumes and 2,750,000 pages.
