The Numerical List also indicates the specific volume of the Congressional Serial Set in which each Document and Report is bound. No alphabetical or subject indexing is contained in this publication.
The "Schedule of Volumes" lists numerically, by Serial Number, each volume of the Congressional Serial Set as well as the contents of each volume. The Schedule of Volumes is usually planned at the beginning of a new Session of Congress and it is compiled as the Session of Congress progresses. All documents authorized to be printed during the Session must be submitted for printing or accounted for before the Schedule can be completed.
A new publication entitled, "Monthly Catalog--United States Congressional Serial Set Supplement" came off the press in March 1985. It indexed all of the Documents and Reports of the 97th Congress that were bound in the Serial Set and included a "List of the Serial Set Volumes." Three-fourths of the publication consisted of various indices and the Numerical Listing of Documents and Reports was omitted, much to the dismay of the users.
Based on user response, the Serial Set Committee was asked to meet again to review this new publication and to make further recommendations for changes in the 98th Congress Catalog.
After much deliberation the Serial Set Committee made the following recommendations:
Thus, the present publication entitled "United States Congressional Serial Set Catalog" evolved and was issued, indexing Congressional Serial Set material for the 98th Congress.
