Use this form to perform keyword searches on congressional publication metadata records. Metadata records include titles and other bibliographic information, subject indexing, and abstracts where available. Using this form will return targeted results, finding records in which the search term represents a main theme. In cases where full text is available, the metadata record will link directly to the full text.
Use this form to perform simple keyword searches or use Advanced Search options to further refine your search. Advanced Search options allow you to specify the publication resource (e.g., hearings, House and Senate documents, legislative histories, etc.) and document segment (e.g., title, subject, full text, etc.) to be searched.
