A number of the library's databases provide access to compiled federal legislative histories including ProQuest Legislative Insight, HeinOnline, LexisNexis (Legal > Legislation & Politics – U.S. & U.K. > U.S. Congress > Legislative Histories), and Westlaw (Directory > U.S. Federal Materials > Legislative History > Legislative Histories).
Additional federal legislative histories may be located by consulting LLSDC's Legislative Source Book as well as searching JACOB, the library's catalog, and the web. When searching JACOB, try a keyword search using the <name of the legislation> and "legislative history."
For additional information on locating federal legislative histories, see the Burns Law Library's Federal Legislative History Research Guide.
