U.S. House of Representatives Launches Records Search


U.S. House of Representatives Launches Records Search

Last month the U.S. House of Representatives launched Records Search on the History, Art & Archives website; a collaborative project between the Office of the House Historian and the Clerk’s Office of Art and Archives.

The website describes itself …

The will of the people, the history of the country, the work of the U.S. House of Representatives—each can be traced in the documents that compose the institution’s official records. House records reflect how citizens and their elected representatives address, advocate, and legislate for important issues. Explore a selection of the records—from the everyday to the extraordinary—of the committees and officers of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Read more about the new website on the In Custodia Legis (Law Librarians of Congress) blog.

While exploring these documents, check out the Records & Research homepage

The people and activities of the U.S. House of Representatives have inspired numerous publications and millions of pages of records that tell their stories. Browse resources to help conduct research on congressional records, the institution of the House, its committees, and its Speakers. Access bibliographies, lists of standard reference volumes, and finding aids for official House records to discover the history behind the House.
