Virtual Reference Desk Abstract
The Congressional Record Index is a publication of the Joint Committee on Printing, Congress of the United States. The database is updated daily when Congress is in session and indexes the daily issues of the Congressional Record. Unlike the paper editions, these databases cumulate from the beginning of the session of Congress. Each year of the Congressional Record Index can be searched individually, however, selecting the historical database searches all years except for the current year. The GPO Access pages allow searching the Record from 1983 to present.
