Library of Congress Digitized Hearings

The Law Library of Congress contains approximately 75,000 volumes of printed Congressional Hearings. The Law Library’s hearing collection is a rich resource for anyone interested in the history of issues that still face our country today. As part of the Law Library’s transition to the digital future, a collaborative pilot project was undertaken with Google, Inc. to digitize the entire collection and make it freely available to Congress and the world. Three collections have been selectively compiled to provide users with a test experience: Census,U.S.Freedom of Information/Privacy,and Immigration These selected Hearings, presented as Adobe Acrobat PDF files, are samples of a larger group that will be digitized and made available as a result of this project. Ultimately, both the Library and Google will provide full-text access to the larger group of Hearings. Census
