Descriptions of sources focus on Member and committee directory information, but many of these resources contain additional details that are outside the scope of this report. The prices listed are current at the time of publication but are subject to change. In addition, shipping charges or bulk discounts may apply. After a new Congress is elected, lists of Members’ room and telephone numbers are generally available 1 or 2 months after the election, and lists of committee and subcommittee assignments are usually available 2 or 3 months after the Congress convenes, in January of odd-numbered years. Until then, comprehensive lists of such information are usually unavailable. As committee and subcommittee assignments are made public, journals that regularly cover Congress—such as the CQ Weekly, CQ Monitor, National Journal, Roll Call, and The Hill—publish the information piecemeal. When Congress is in session, the Congressional Record prints lists of Members’ room and telephone numbers and committee lists once the information is available. Copies of many of these publications are available to congressional staff in the Congressional Research Service (CRS) reading room and research centers and to constituents at large public and research libraries. Official lists of Members and their committee assignments are printed by the Clerk of the House and the Secretary of the Senate for their respective chambers when the information is complete, if only in preliminary form. They are updated periodically as changes occur. Members of Congress and the public may obtain copies of these lists by writing or calling: Clerk of the House, U.S. House of Representatives, Legislative Resource Center, B106 Cannon House Office Building, Washington, D.C. 205156612, (202) 226-5200—for House lists (These lists are also available online through the Clerk of the House Web site. See Internet Resources, below.) Secretary of the Senate, U.S. Senate, Office of Public Records, 232 Hart Senate Office Building, Washington, D.C. 20510-7116 (202) 224-0322—for Senate lists CRS-2 Printed Publications Many of the resources described below are available in libraries and bookstores, and all may be purchased directly from the publisher. Most of the biennial resources are published several months after a new Congress convenes. These resources may also be available to congressional staff in the CRS reading room and research centers. Constituents who belong to professional or trade associations, unions, or other groups that have an interest in Congress may want to see if their group provides a printed congressional directory. These directories are often low-cost or free. Almanac of American Politics National Journal, Inc. 600 New Hampshire Avenue, N.W.
