Congressional Research Reports
We now have access to the full-text Congressional Research Service ("CRS") Reports starting in 1916 through LexisNexis Congressional (campus authentication required). CRS is the research arm of the Library of Congress and they write reports at the request of Congress. These reports deal with everything from environmental issues, such as global warming, to foreign relations. These reports are not available online from the CRS because while these are not classified they can only be released to the public by members of congress, generally this is done through a request from a constituent. For those of you without campus authentication, check out our subject guide which links to a variety of free sources of these reports.
