Congressional Hearings Digital Collection: About Hearings

Coming Soon!

What are Hearings?

The Congressional Hearings Digital Collection is a collection of published and unpublished hearings held by Congress. 

Congressional committee hearings may be classified into four types: legislative, oversight, investigative, and confirmation.

Official hearings, which are printed by the Government Printing Office (GPO), usually include:  written and oral statements of witnesses; transcripts of the verbal question-and-answer session between committee members and witnesses; reports, exhibits, and other materials submitted for the record by witnesses; and correspondence and other materials submitted by interested parties. 

For more information on hearings, see the in-product Help (link in the upper right corner), or:
