New Research Resources: United States Treaties Series Added to Law Library of Congress Website

From the Law Library of Congress Blog Post by Jennifer González:

We have added the United States Treaty Series, compiled by Charles I. Bevans, to our online digital collection. This collection includes treaties that the United States signed with other countries from 1776 to 1949. The collection consists of 13 volumes: four volumes of multilateral treaties, eight volumes of bilateral treaties and one volume of an index.

Multilateral treaties are signed by the United States and at least two other countries and are organized chronologically. Bilateral treaties are organized by the one country with whom the United States signed the treaty and then in chronological order. The countries are in alphabetical order beginning with Afghanistan and ending with Zanzibar. The index has subjects and countries and can be used by browsing or finding your search terms through a “Ctrl + F” search of the PDF.
