Congressional Digest: New eCollection

What is it?

Congressional Digest was founded in 1921 by suffragette Alice Gram Robinson, with the aim of providing voters with impartial reporting on high-interest issues.  Each issue features an impartial overview on a contemporary topic with pro and con viewpoints written by members of the U.S. Congress.

 

The library’s digital subscription to Congressional Digest includes issues dating back to 1998 and also includes Supreme Court Debates and the archive of the (now ceased) International Debate reports.
