Each issue of CQ Weekly—fully archived to 1983 on the Web—looks forward and back. Your readers get in-depth reports on issues looming on the congressional horizon, plus a complete wrap-up of the previous week’s news, including the status of bills in play, behind-the-scenes maneuvering, committee and floor activity, debates, and all roll-call votes. Written in plain-English prose that makes it easy for people "outside the beltway" to understand complex legislation and its ramifications just as well as any Washington insider, CQ Weekly constitutes an easy-to-use reference source featuring the following unique advantages:
- Novice and expert researchers alike can search the site using Basic and Advanced search machinery. Users can search the entire site for a word or phrase following default criteria using "Quick Search." Alternatively, they can use:
- The "Search Articles" screen – where users can conduct a keyword search across the text (or titles) of all articles, or narrow the search to one or more topics, to a specific bill or committee, reporter’s byline, and/or date of article,
- The "Search Floor Votes" Screen – where users can conduct a keyword search across the text (or titles) of all votes, or narrow their search to a specific bill, the date the bill was published, and/or the relevant chamber of Congress.
- Both screens allow users to sort searches by relevancy, date, or alphabetically by title.
- As an alternative to searching, users who prefer a wide-lens view can browse by date of issue across all topics or within a specific topic.
- "Go to Keyword" pinpoints the location of the search keyword in records where it is found.
- The user-friendly "Help" function answers frequently asked questions and offers helpful research advice, including guidelines for citing CQ Weekly.
- Librarians can monitor usage statistics via remote access.
