Barbara Bavis and Robert Brammer, of the In Custodia Legis Blog: Law Librarians of Congress, has written an informative post on all of the resources, finding guides, and helpful sources which the Library of Congress has created to find treaties written by the United States of America.
"There are several options for researchers trying to find copies of treaties to which the United States is or was a party. In fact, we were inspired to write this post by the new Treaties digital collection added to the Law Library of Congress website."
