CQ Press additions

The library recently subscribed to two resources from Congressional Quarterly:

  • CQ Almanac
    From the publisher’s description:

    Since it was first published in 1946, CQ Almanac has been the definitive annual reference for studying the U.S. Congress. Building on the reporting and analysis done throughout the year by CQ’s award-winning news staff, the Almanac offers original narrative accounts of every major piece of legislation that lawmakers considered during a congressional session. Arranged thematically, CQ Almanac organizes, distills, and cross-indexes for permanent reference the full year in Congress and in national politics. Its clear and concise language makes the Almanac an essential resource for scholars, journalists, interested citizens, and students of the U.S. legislative system.

  • CQ Global Researcher
    From the publisher’s description:

    Modeled after the award-winning CQ Researcher, CQ Global Researcher provides students with definitive, in-depth coverage of global affairs from a number of international viewpoints. Available exclusively online, CQ Global Researcher offers focused, readable, single-topic reports on vital world issues. Written by seasoned journalists with years of international experience, these reports make use of such popular sections as “current situation,” “pro-con,” and a new feature called “voices from abroad.” By exposing students to a wide range of viewpoints CQ Global Researcher provides a comprehensive snapshot of today’s most pressing issues. Each single-themed, 12,000-word CQ Global Researcher report is researched and written by an experienced observer of the given issue. The consistent, reader-friendly organization provides researchers with an introductory overview; background and assessment of the current situation; pro/con statements from representatives of opposing positions; chronology on the topic, followed by short features for extensive context; a sampling of related international perspectives; maps and graphs; bibliographies of key sources; next steps for additional reading; and author profiles.

In addition, the library purchased additional content to CQ Researcher.  We now have access to more than 3,000 reports published between 1923 and 1990 (our previous purchase agreement only allowed access to documents published from 1991 onwards).
