NOTES:

Historically, the LLSDC Legislative Research SIS has used the above GPO Access, Committee and related "quick links" to verify transcriptions of the LLSDC GPO Congressional Publication Releases project. This project has been suspended until further notice. See also related Government Printing Office (GPO) sites including the GPO CatalogNew Titles (both electronic and tangible), Congressional Committee Materials, (by committee) and Federal Depository Library Information - Shipping Lists. Please note that most Congressional hearings are no longer printed in tangible form by GPO, but may be available as print-on-demand items (202-512-1800). Federal depository libraries and the related Congressional committees are some of the few places that receive selected tangible copies of Congressional hearings automatically. GPO Access makes available in PDF most Congressional committee material with certain committees excepted.
