Williams College Library owns almost every volume of the print Serial Set through the 112th Congress. The volumes are stored in our Library Shelving Facility (LSF). Any user, even non-Williams, may request them from the LSF.

Williams College Library has a digital edition of this important resource. Non-Williams users may access the database, Congressional Publications, within the Libraries; Williams users can use it off-network via the Proxy Server.

Congressional Publications provides the full-text of all Serial Set content through 1979 (96th Congress). If you have the Serial Set volume number from a bibliographic citation (ex: 5178 H.doc.352), you can access the volume from the Bibliographic Citations tab on this form.
