Stanford Library's Social Sciences Resource Group supports research, instruction and collection development within the social sciences, including subject areas like political science, economics, sociology, anthropology, psychology, communication, environmental and public policy. The SSRC also includes CA state, local, US Federal and International government information, data and statistics. SSRC's Archive-it collections will focus on San Francisco bay area governments, IGO/NGO working papers, and other areas of interest to Stanford social scientists.
Congressional Research Service (CRS) is a "think tank" that provides research reports to members of Congress on a variety of topics relevant to current political events. However, the Congressional Research Service (CRS) does not provide direct public access to its reports, nor are they released to the public via the Federal Library Depository Program (FDLP). There are several organizations that collect and give access to subsets of published CRS Reports. This collection attempts to bring all CRS Reports together in one place. For more information on CRS, see the Sunlight Foundations CRS Reports backgrounder (http://bit.ly/CRSReports). Please contact James Jacobs (jrjacobs AT stanford DOT edu) if you know of additional sites hosting CRS reports.
