Quick Start: Congressional Record Permanent Digital Collection: About the Congressional Record

What is the Congressional Record?

There are two versions of the Congressional Record in ProQuest Congressional

The first version, available with the Congressional Basic subscription, is the Congressional Record Daily Edition.  For information on this first version, use the Congressional Basic quick start guide (see link below).

The second version, the Permanent Digital Collection, contains both the bound Congressional Record (beginning in 1873 and currently available through the late 1990s) and the predecessor titles including the Congressional Globe (1833-1873), the Register of Debates in Congress (1824-1837), and the Annals of Congress (1789-1824).   

This second version, the Congressional Record Permanent Digital Collection, is what we are highlighting in this guide.
