On Trial

If you want to keep better tabs on congressional representatives, check out the Library’s newest database trial: CQ Press Congress Collection.  From now until February 20th, the Ross Pendergraft Library is hosting a trial of this new reference tool enabling users to find biographical, political, and electoral data on every member of Congress since 1945.  Research floor votes, search full legislation text, and see statistical data, legislative analysis, Supreme Court case summaries and more with this easy-to-use platform.


For political science junkies, this tool can provide fast facts about current Congressional members, as well as in-depth details on past members.  Analyze and export voting data by state, religious affiliation, gender, and more.



Not really up to speed on the political progress?  The Congress Collection includes a Congressional Dictionary, Congressional Encyclopedia, list of important public policy issues by topic, and comprehensive overviews of how Congress works.
