About the U.S. Presidential Library

As the head of state and government of the United States of America, the president is one of the most influential and noteworthy political figures in the world. Though the main responsibility of the presidency has not changed since the drafting of the U.S. Constitution—ensuring the faithful execution of U.S. law—the office, its powers, and its expectations have been molded by the various individuals who have entered it over the centuries. The role that each American president has played reflects the evolution of the United States’ government, society, and standing on the world stage.

Research the impact of each president with HeinOnline’s U.S. Presidential Library, a database of more than 1,500 titles and nearly a million pages dedicated to presidential documents. The database includes messages and papers of the presidents, daily and weekly compilations of presidential documents, public papers of the presidents, documents relating to impeachment, Title 3 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), and a host of other related works.

Featured Subcollections

Organized around the four presidents affected so far, the U.S. Presidential Impeachment Library brings together a variety of documents both contemporaneous and asynchronous to each president’s impeachment, presenting both a snapshot of the political climate as each played out and the long view history has taken of past proceedings.

Congressional Research Service (CRS) reports round out a general discussion of presidential impeachment while a curated list of scholarly articles, external links, and a bibliography provide avenues for further research. Also included is the ever-growing resource Whistleblower Complaint on Ukraine,  compiled by Kelly Smith at UC San Diego. 

The Daily Compilation of Presidential Documents is issued through the Office of the Federal Register and contains statements, messages, and other presidential material released by the White House.

This compilation also includes speeches, press conferences, press releases, proclamations, executive orders, acts approved by the President, and many more documents. Also included is the predecessor title, Weekly Compilation of Presidential Documents. 

A 22-volume set beginning with George Washington and concluding with Herbert Hoover.

The messages of the presidents of the United States are among the most interesting, instructive, and valuable contributions to the public literature of our republic. They discuss from the loftiest standpoint nearly all the great questions of national policy and many subjects of minor interest which have engaged the attention of the people from the beginning of our history, and so constitute important and often vital documents in the history of the United States. 

Public Papers of the Presidents begins with Herbert Hoover and concludes with Barack Obama. The papers have been compiled and published by the Office of the Federal Register’s National Archives and Records Administration since 1957 in response to a recommendation by the National Historical Publications Commission. Noting the lack of uniform compilations of messages and papers of the presidents before this time, the Commission recommended the establishment of an official series in which presidential writings, addresses, and remarks of a public nature would be made available. 

 

 

This subcollection provides comprehensive digital coverage of Title 3 (The President) of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). Divided into 50 titles, the CFR is the codification of the general and permanent rules and regulations published in the Federal Register by the executive departments and agencies of the federal government of the United States.

Access true-to-print digital copies of every iteration of the 3rd title all the way back to the publication’s inception in 1938.
