A major collection of U. S. federal government documents, the American State Papers consist of bound volumes of all reports, documents, and journals of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives for the years 1789-1838. The American State Papers are the predecessor to the U.S. Congressional Serial Set which begins with the 15th. Congress in 1817 and continues through the present. The digitization of the Serial Set is being done in stages by the Readex company and is part of the Archive of Americana series of databases and currently is available for the 15th. - 48th. Congress (1817-1885). Eventually, this database will provide coverage through the 96th. Congress (1980). This database can be searched and browsed. PDF images of all documents are available for downloading and printing
