Lexis.com adds Congressional Hearings back to 1824

Lexis.com now has Congressional Hearings back to 1824, which is much further than any other vendor.  Previously, hearings older than 1994 were available online only at academic libraries that subscribed to the LexisNexis Congressional Hearings Digital Collection.

    What database on Lexis contains the hearings back to 1824? Is this database not included in the law school plan? All I see is Congressional Hearing Summaries and CQ Transcriptions.

    I clicked on the links in this post and I could not find the database.

    • Good point! For some reason, the change didn’t take, but it’s up now. The new text says:

      “Lexis has published hearings back to 1824 in three databases (LEGIS;CHDCA for 1824-1979; LEGIS;CHDCB for 1980-2003 and LEGIS;CHDCC for 2004-Present).”
