Cross posted to the listservs LLSDC, Govdoc-L, Law-Lib, and FedLib:

The Law Librarians' Society of Washington, D.C., Inc. (LLSDC) is pleased to
announce the availability on its Legislative Source Book Website ( of a new title called "Sources for
Finding Mandated Reports to Congress by U.S. Federal Agencies" ( The site briefly describes and
links to sources that list or may make available reports from Federal
agencies mandated by Congressional statute. Other matters discussed include
where the text of report  provisions can be found in the law, who receives
the reports, sunsetted report provisions that remain in the U.S. Code,
general reporting provisions applicable to most agencies, and other

As questions about locating these mandated reports have arisen recently on
various listservs, it is hoped that this site will be helpful in answering
future queries.

LLSDC's Legislative Source Book ( has many
other helpful guides and listings. Of recent note is the expansion of the
site "Legislative Histories of Selected U.S. Laws on the Internet" ( so that the site had to be broken into four
related sites: 1) legislative histories on the free Internet, 2) commercial
legislative histories by popular name order, 3) commercial legislative
histories by public law number order,  and 4) explanatory notes. Combined,
the sites list and directly link to more than 200 legislative histories.

 No one should ever say that it was my ignorance if I did or showed forth anything however      
 small according to God's good pleasure; but let this be your conclusion and let it so be       
 thought, that - as is the perfect truth - it was the gift of God.  -
