About the Congressional Serial Set

The U.S.Congressional Serial Set, including the American State Papers, is a series of reports and documents published by Congress.  It's called the Serial Set because it was published in serial fashion... meaning that there are more than 15,000 volumes in this series now!     

For more information on the Serial Set, see the In-Product Help (link in the upper right corner of interface), or the
