August Imholtz (Vice President, Government Publications, Readex) will be in Oxford on Friday 28th January, and will be giving two talks on Readex library resources available to Oxford users. At 3pm he will be speaking about the US Congressional Serial Set, followed by the Foreign Broadcast Information Service Daily Reports at 3.45pm. Both talks will take place in Seminar Room 2 at the Rothermere American Institute.
The US Congressional Serial Set, 1817-1994 is a rich collection of primary source material detailing all aspects of American history. It contains all the reports and documents submitted to Congress, as well as the House & Senate Journals, and is a vast resource of over 415,000 documents, including over 70,000 maps.
The Foreign Broadcast Information Service Daily Reports include translated broadcasts and print media publications from all around the world, providing a commentary on many major world events from the second half of the 20th century. Please note we do not have access to the full resource here in Oxford, but only certain regions from 1974-1996 (Middle East, Africa, Latin America, Eastern Europe, Soviet Union).
Both resources are available via OxLIP+.
