This resource provides access to the CQ Public Affairs Collection of primary sources, statistical overviews, and in-depth reporting on public policy; the CQ Researcher database of reporting and analysis of issues in the news; and CQ Weekly, which covers the United States Congress. These sources can be searched together or separately. The electronic library provides an excellent reference resource for research in American government, politics, history, public policy, and current affairs.

Search tips:

  • For the best search results, select advanced search. To narrow your search results select "search titles only." For example a search on abortion without narrowing the results will retrieve 1000 documents, narrowing will reduce it by more than half.
  • Another way to narrow search results further is to select search-specific topics. Using the specific topic search for social issues and policies with our abortion search from above narrows the results by half again.
  • To narrow the results even further, select some specific document types to add to the search above. Selecting floor vote, facts & figures, CQ Researcher and Primary Source narrowed our search down to 12 items.
