Criss Library has been a selective Federal depository since 1939, and during most years we received about one-half of the documents distributed to libraries. The strongest areas are:
Researchers may search the library catalog to identify Executive department and agency documents by keyword, title, or subject; and they can set the location filter to retrieve records for only U.S. Docs.
In 1911, the U.S. Government Printing Office published the Checklist of United States Public Documents, 1789-1909, a landmark reference work listing Federal documents published between the 1st Congress and the 60th Congress. Commonly called the 1909 Checklist, it remains a standard for scholars.
The Congressional Research Service (CIS) published a microfiche archive of the 110,000 documents listed in the 1909 Checklist which were not included in the Congressional Serial Set. While searching for copies of the documents, the editors discovered that in some cases they were using the only copy known to exist. In addition, they found some documents which were not recorded in the 1909 Checklist. When Criss Library purchased the United States Executive Documents, 1789-1909 microfiche archive, it acquired a major collection containing many documents which were in danger of being lost forever. Indexes to the archive are shelved in the Reference Collection at the call number J69.C53.
CIS also compiled the United States Executive Documents, 1910-1932 microfiche archive, which adheres to the comprehensive standard of the 1909 Checklist. Criss Library also owns this collection, and indexes are shelved in the Reference Collection at the call number J69.C53. There are no electronic indexes for these Executive document microfiche archives.
