Pres. Keel in Congress! Read and Learn More Through the Library’s ProQuest Congressional Database

As you probably know by now, President Brooks Keel, 12th President of Georgia Southern University, testified at the fourteenth congressional hearing before the Committee on Education and Workforce in preparation for the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act in Washington D.C. on April 2nd. The hearing on “College Affordability” was presided over by Rep. John Kline (MN-2nd District)and discussed changes and the “future” of higher education in the United States. Keel’s testimony lauded Georgia Southern’s significant workforce-grant university model in improving economic prosperity. You can read more about Pres. Keel’s testimony and learn more about the hearing through Henderson Library’s ProQuest Congressional database. ProQuest Congressional “provides daily updated information, including full text of bills starting in 1989, public laws starting in 1988, committee reports starting in 1990, House and Senate documents starting in 1995, Congressional Record starting in 1985, Federal Register starting in 1980, National Journal starting in 1977 and other government information.”

Henderson Library added the U.S. Serial Set Digital Collection to the ProQuest Congressional platform this week, making available House and Senate materials back to 1789. Included in the set are wonderful maps from the original Serial Set, and the new database also makes legislative histories easier than ever.
