The U.S. Department of State is the oldest department in the executive branch of the U.S. government, established in 1789. It manages the foreign relations of the U.S.
We have an extensive collection of State Department documents, including a variety of general publications, pamphlets, and other materials. Most pre-1900 State Department documents, including Foreign relations of the U.S., are available in the U.S. Congressional Serial Set (UHM login required). We have thousands of Congressional hearings and reports about foreign relations and international affairs. Search for these using ProQuest Congressional (UHM login required).
Additional documents covering 1910-1932 are available in the Executive Branch Documents microfiche set. Please contact a government documents librarian if you have questions about our holdings.
