Trial access to US Serial Set and American State Papers

We are pleased to announce that we have trial access to the online US Congressional Serial Set, 1817-1980 and the American State Papers, 1789-1838, available until November 13th.

The US Serial Set is a rich collection of primary source material detailing all aspects of American history. This resource is invaluable to the research of US political, social, cultural, military, and ethnic history, as well as international relations, explorations, genealogy, commerce, industrial development, and more. Its contents come not only from the US Congress, but also include key Executive Department publications. Beginning with volume 1 in the first session of the 15th Congress (1817), the Readex US Congressional Serial Set, 1817-1980 contains all publications from the 15th through to the 96th Congresses. American State Papers, 1789-1838 – which contains every legislative and executive document of the 1st through to the 14th Congresses and more – both complements the US Congressional Serial Set and is cross-searchable with it.

Upon completion, the database will contain nearly 14,000 volumes and more than 12 million pages from the original 350,000 publications, along with 52,000 maps and thousands of illustrations and statistical tables.

Both are available via OxLIP+, and can also be accessed directly from: The trial ends on 13th November. Please email or with your feedback.
