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.
