Appalachian State University needed to reclaim space on their shelves and ProQuest is helping them to do just that. The library realized that it had a great number of paper documents that were under-utilized by the students and essentially wasting much needed space on their shelves because they were difficult to search. Gaining access to the information in those government documents would be invaluable for over 17,000 students that attend ASU in North Carolina.

“We are excited to add ProQuest Congressional to our library’s resources. By replacing the paper documents with the online versions we will be able to regain shelf space and with the excellent search functions of the ProQuest Congressional suite we will vastly improve access to information buried in government documents“, shared Allan Scherlen Social Sciences Librarian at ASU.

ASU will regain shelf space in their library and improve access to essential government documents, simultaneously achieving two of their goals with the addition of the ProQuest Congressional Suite, which includes full-text components of all of these products.

  • Serial Set
  • Congressional Hearings Digital Collection
  • Congressional Research Digital Collection
  • Congressional Record Permanent Digital Collection
  • Legislative Insight
  • Digital U.S. Bills & Resolutions
  • Executive Branch Documents


With these products, students and faculty at ASU will have access to a comprehensive resource for legislative histories and in-depth research of Congressional actions through history to enhance their research experience.
