The Library does have older Congressional Records. The ones for the time period you need will be on Microfilm. We also have the Congressional Record Index (on microfilm as well). You can request these materials at the Serials Desk on the ground floor of Stapleton Library. However, I'm not sure that what you need will be in the Congressional Record. The Congressional Record primarily contains the transcripts of what transpires in the actual sessions of Congress. It usually does not include transcripts of hearings. We do, however, have a collection of older committee hearings on microfiche. There are a couple of printed resources that will help you to locate what is in the collection. The Index of the hearings is available with call number [REF] KF40.H8 1973 and the Shelf List of the collection is [REF] KF40.U5. You can find these in the Reference Collection on the 1st floor of Stapleton Library. This collection is used very rarely and is somewhat complicated to use. It would be best if you ask for the assistance of the librarian at the Reference Desk. The students working at the Serials Desk will probably not be familiar with the set.
