Amen, Kathleen L.
This document is the second in a series of four guides to the government documents collection in the academic library at St. Mary's University (San Antonio, Texas); the library has been a selective depository for U.S. Government publications since 1964. Focusing on congressional publications pertaining to laws and regulations, this guide describes the nature of the collection, its library location, methods of access, and particular types of congressional publications included in the collection, i.e., Hearing and Committee Prints, the Serial Set, the Congressional Record, Journals (the proceedings of the House and Senate), and miscellaneous congressional publications. The classification of bills is briefly explained, as well as the U.S. Code and the shelving of laws. Sources which regularly describe legislation and are good places to look for summaries and numbers of laws and bills are then listed, and descriptions of sources of information on regulations conclude this guide.
