CIS U.S. Congressional Committee Hearings. Washington, D.C.: Congressional Information Service, Inc., 1981-1985.
This commercially published index covers Senate and House committee hearings from approximately 1830-1969. It is divided into eight chronological parts, each of which consists of several volumes. The first part, for example, covers hearings from 1833 to March 1917. Each part contains an index by subjects and organizations, which then refers to a separate reference bibliography volume containing detailed information on each hearing, including witnesses, topics discussed, and the number of any bill that was the subject of the hearing. There is also a title index, bill number index, SuDocs number index and names index. All items have a CIS reference number and are published in microfiche; if a hearing does not also have a SuDoc number or a reference to the Serial Set, it is likely to only be available in CIS’s microfiche set of hearing transcripts. The reference below is an example of a document available only on microfiche.
