Federal Advisory Committee Collection
The Federal Advisory Committee (FAC) collection consists of materials
legally deposited with the Library of Congress under the Federal
Advisory Committee Act of 1972. The collection consists of approximately
200,000 documents including charters, annual reports, and background
papers submitted to the Library of Congress by various committees,
boards, commissions, councils, and similar groups established to
advise offices and agencies in the Executive Branch.
Some examples of the advisory bodies are the National Advisory
Council on Drug Abuse, the Space Science Advisory Committee, the
Illinois Advisory Committee to the United States Commission on
Civil Rights, and the President's Board of Advisors on Historically
Black Colleges and Universities.
Holdings may be determined by searching the library's catalog. There is
also a partial digital archive, the FACA
Database, maintained by GSA.
