Serial Set Guide from Proquest: Home

The Serial Set includes over 300,000 U.S. Government titles and is a gold mine of primary source materials for research and study.

What's it all about?

Many historians, political scientists, and other researchers  consider the Serial Set the most historically significant collection of U.S. government documents ever published.   The set includes over 300,000 titles and is a gold mine of primary source material on a wide range of topics.  Whether you are interested in History, Politics, maps, wildlife, the environment, or anything in between, the Serial Set has something for you.  Now that access is as close as our databases page!!   Most of the information in this guide is provided by    the company which produces the Serial Set online. 

Take a look at the tabs to learn much more about what is in the Serial Set and how it is organized.

A couple of things to remember about the Serial Set here at the Alkek Library.

  • We have access to the Serial Set online from 1789-present.
  • As a selective depository of government information, we have many volumes of the Serial Set in print form from 1970-2003.  These are available in our Government Information unit in the Alkek Library.  The staff there will be happy to assist you.
