More than 100,000 MARC records for the LexisNexis Congressional Hearings Digital Collection, 1824-2003, have been loaded into Orbis, the Yale Library catalog.

Congressional hearings are among the most heavily used materials in Yale’s U.S. federal government documents collection.

To give you a flavor of the range of subject matter covered in hearings, here are the titles of just three hearings held on April 5 in years past:

Nonconsensual recording of telephone conversations: hearings before the Subcommittee on Criminal Justice of the Committee on the Judiciary, House of Representatives, Ninety-eighth Congress, second session on H.R. 4826 ... March 8 and April 5, 1984.

Ocean dumping of waste materials: hearings before the Subcommittee on Fisheries and Wildlife Conservation and the Subcommittee on Oceanography of the Committee on Merchant Marine and Fisheries, House of Representatives, Ninety-second Congress, first session ... April 5, 6, 7, 1971.

Taxpayer beware: schemes, scams, and cons : hearing before the Committee on Finance, United States Senate, One Hundred Seventh Congress, first session on IRS oversight, April 5, 2001.
