Change in Resource Name: Proquest congressional

Effective March 26, the Lexis/Nexis Congressional Collection has been rebranded. When you login to the product, it will now say “ProQuest Congressional” and not “LexisNexis”. Since the product has not yet moved over to the ProQuest platform, all durable URLs will still say LexisNexis.

If you are maintaining links to Lexis Nexis Congressional, please update the name on your LibGuide or other web pages. The access url remains the same as:
