Library of Congress: The Congressional Research Service

The Congressional Research Service (CRS) is an agency within the Library of Congress that works exclusively for the United States Congress, providing policy and legal analysis to committees and Members of both the House and Senate.


This grant to the Library of Congress will support the Congressional Research Service’s orientation seminars for newly-elected members of the 116th Congress. It will also support the John W. Kluge Center at the Library to conduct a congressional masterclass series on governance-related topics of wide interest by leading academics. The grant also will support two historical exhibits that will showcase important Library resources and collections for congressional audiences and the broader public.
