Crucial to understanding many policy, process, and legal issues, Executive Orders are the formal means by which the President of the United States executes a wide range of actions related to the Federal Government’s internal operations and organization, as well as foreign and domestic policies. The challenge for librarians and researchers is that many historic executive orders, especially those prior to 1935, are unnumbered, difficult to identify and locate online or elsewhere, and not easily searchable with congressional or other executive branch content.
When searched in conjunction with other ProQuest Congressional content, this collection can provide the “missing piece” for many historic events and offer insight into the role of executive orders in the U.S. legal system.
Only ProQuest makes available a complete collection of numbered and unnumbered Executive Orders and Presidential Proclamations 1789-present, including those that are published in the Federal Register and cumulated annually in Title 3 of the Code of Federal Regulations plus many, many others
Ideal for legal researchers and main library academic researchers interested in U.S. History, Presidential Powers, Public Lands, Military History, Native American Studies, Administrations of Specific Presidents, the New Deal, Foreign Relations, and more.
