I'm looking for something listed on Lexis Nexis Congressional as a Committee Print called "The Facts and Science of Climate Change." There are no listings for this item in Socrates, Melvyl, or WorldCat. Was it ever distributed to Federal depository libraries?
While many Committee Prints are distributed to depositories via the Government Printing Office (GPO), not all are. This is up to the committee in question. This one was never distributed, but fortunately it is available here on the committee website.

How much did the federal government spend on national defense in 1942?
You can find historical data about U.S. military spending in "Historical tables, budget of the United States Government," published annually by the Office of Management and Budget. This is available online and in print. In that document, "military spending" refers to national defense.
In addition, there are many organizations and websites that analyze military expenditures in global contexts, including Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), The Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation, Statistical Resources on the Web Military and Defense, and World Wide Military Expenditure.

Where can I find speeches given by Rosalynn Carter and Nancy Reagan while they were First Ladies?
This Guide to Finding Speeches lists many resources at Stanford. Additional possibilities include National First Ladies' Library, Jimmy Carter Library and Museum, and Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library.
For books on Mrs. Carter and Mrs. Reagan's years as First Ladies, try a Searchworks search by "Carter, Rosalynn," "Reagan, Nancy," or "First Ladies United States." You can narrow the search by adding in other keywords. Finally, since Mrs. Carter advocated for mental health and Mrs. Reagan called for the nation to “just say no” to illegal drug use, you might want to search these causes separately to find more interviews and speeches.
