Serial Set Maps includes maps originally published in the U. S. Congressional Serial Set .  The maps are indexed by the geographic areas they depict, the subjects they represent, their titles, and the names associated with the maps either as cartographers, explorers, or in some other capacity.  The maps cover diverse subjects such as military history, agriculture, forestry, and transportation.

The U. S. Congressional Serial Set is a major collection of United States federal government documents, consisting of bound volumes of all reports, documents, and journals of the U. S. Senate and the House of Representatives.  The digitization of the Serial Set is being done in stages by the Readex NewsBank company and is part of the Archive of Americana series of databases and currently is available for the 15th. through 81st. Congress (1817-1952).  Eventually, the 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.
