Federal Legislative History Research: Compilations

This guide will outline the resources available at the University of Missouri School of Law for federal legislative history research.

What is a Compilation?

A compilation is a previously compiled federal legislative history.  Someone has already done the work for you!  So don't reinvent the wheel! Before starting to create a legislative history (a complex and time consuming task), first look to see if a legislative history has already been compiled. Mizzou Law Library provides access to a wide variety of electronic and print resources that point to or provide compiled legislative histories.
