From the Library of Congress, Citation Guide (http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/amlaw/lwcite.html):United States Congressional Serial Set
Based upon the Bluebook style, citations to the Serial Set should reference the specific House or Senate report or document.
S. Doc. No. 512, 23rd Cong., 1st Sess. (1833). (View (http://memory.loc.gov/cgi-bin/ampage?collId=llss&fileName=0200/0244/llss0244.db&recNum=0) the document cited)
H.R. Doc. No. 736, 56th Cong., 1st Sess. (1899). (View (http://memory.loc.gov/cgi-bin/ampage?collId=llss&fileName=4000/4015/llss4015.db&recNum=0) the document cited)
Sometimes the report's author or title is included in the citation; for example, from the Department of Justice, "Freedom of Information Act Guide, May 2002" (http://www.usdoj.gov/oip/basicreferences.htm):Congressional References
House of Representatives Committee on Government Operations, Clarifying and Protecting the Right of the Public to Information. H.R. Rep. No. 1497, 89th Cong., 2d Sess. (1966), 14 pages. Out of print. Available at most law libraries.
House of Representatives Committee on Government Operations, Freedom of Information Act (Compilation and Analysis of Department Regulations Implementing 5 U.S.C. § 552). Committee Print, 90th Cong., 2d Sess. (1968), 303 pages with appendices. Out of print. Available at most law libraries.
