Documents cover a wide variety of topics and may include reports of executive departments and independent organizations, reports of special investigations made for Congress, and annual reports of non-governmental organizations. During the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, executive-branch materials were also published in the Serial Set.

The serial number may be useful for locating items, but not for citation. The documents and reports series have three numbers: 1) an individual report or document-publication number, 2) a volume number of each series for each session of Congress, and 3) the serial number.
