The Congressional Research Service, an arm of the Library of Congress, serves the legislative process by providing Congress with non-partisan and in-depth legislative research and analysis on a variety of topics. CRS produces or updates more than 3,000 studies and other publications each year, none of which are distributed to the public. Before CRS reports became more readily accessible to the research community through the open web, the Thurgood Marshall Law Library created an online CRS archive collection in the subject areas of Homeland Security/Terrorism and Health Law and Policy from 1993 – 2013.
