Finding Materials in PDF

A guide to resources with primary and secondary content in PDF.


This page concentrates on federal, not state, legislative history sources

The availability of state legislative history materials varies greatly; consult a research guide for the particular state of interest for assistance. To find such a research guide, see Indiana University Law Library's State Legislative History Research Guides on the Web. (Texas legislative history materials are not available in PDF. For help researching in this area, see the law library's Texas Legislative History Research Guide.)

For more help with federal materials, see the law library's Federal Legislative History Research Guide.
