U.S. Congressional Serial Set (HeinOnline)

The United States Congressional Serial Set is considered an essential publication for unveiling American history. Spanning more than two centuries with more than 17,000 bound volumes, the Serial Set includes House and Senate reports, documents, and more.

Future Releases

The number of full-text volumes of the Serial Set in HeinOnline will continue to grow by nearly 350,000 pages a month, or four million pages each year. Moving forward, we will add newly released material, as well as fill in any missing volumes between 1977 and 1817.

Phase 2 of the Serial Set project will include oversized foldouts and maps. Users will be kept up to date on the status of the project via email, the monthly HeinOnline Newsletter, and the HeinOnline blog
