Serial Set

The U.S. Congressional Serial Set contains the Documents and Reports from Congress, but that brief description fails to capture the richness of the content. Many publications from federal agencies on a wide range of topics were published as Congressional documents.  Rich Gause, Government Information Librarian, has created an entire Guide devoted to finding Anthropology resources in the Serial Set.
