The Serial Set is a compilation of U.S. Congressional publications published by the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives about the bills and resolutions involved in lawmaking. It also includes reports of executive departments, government-funded institutions, and other independent organizations. Documents in the Serial Set are arranged in numeric series chronologically (not topically). This collection offers detailed contemporaneous documentation of political, military, and governmental activities related to indigenous peoples of the continental United States and Alaskan territory during the 19th century. These government documents were scanned from the print collections of the Oklahoma Department of Libraries and the University of Oklahoma Libraries. They were identified using Steven L. Johnson’s bibliography, Guide to American Indian Documents in the Congressional Serial Set: 1817-1899, published by Clearwater Publishing Company in 1977. Permission for use of descriptive subject annotations was granted by ProQuest LLC as successor in title to ownership of this publication. Individuals responsible for creating the database are Marilyn K. Nicely, Retired Law Librarian for Native American Digitization at the University of Oklahoma Donald E. Pray Law Library; Steve Beleu, retired librarian, Oklahoma Department of Libraries; Jeffrey Wilhite, Documents Librarian at the University of Oklahoma Libraries; Elaine B. Bradshaw, Librarian and Digital Repository Manager, University of Oklahoma Donald E. Pray Law Library; and student workers, Sarah K. Capps and Jared Johnson.
