Hi Everyone -
I just wanted to send an e-mail to invite you and your staffs to the
Department of the Interior Library on Wednesday, July 27th from 2:00 to
4:00 pm for a training session entitled "Advanced Legal Research on
Westlaw," part of our series of free training sessions at the DOI Library.
Attendees will take research skills learned in the “Westlaw: Introduction
and New Features” courses, or Weslaw legal research skills they already
have, to the next level. Those participating will learn how to conduct
advanced case-law research on Westlaw’s legal and legislative databases.
This includes learning how to find cases by attorney or judge's name, date,
and jurisdiction. They will be shown how to explore statutory materials and
learn how to combine the best of book and online research with Westlaw's
online Table of Contents. Additionally, they will examine KeyCite's unique
features that allow researchers to fine-tune their result by legal issue,
jurisdiction, and other selected criteria. Participants will learn how to
personalize Westlaw to meet their own unique research needs. This program
will be conducted by a Westlaw trainer.
All that are interested are invited. The DOI Library is located in the
Main Interior Building, located at 1849 C Street, NW, Room 1151 in
Washington. Space is limited so please contact the Library by phone at
(202) 208-5815 or by e-mail at [log in to unmask] to let us know you will be
coming. Please Note: This class is also being offered to remote users as
a simultaneous online webinar via WebEx. Please contact the DOI Library by
e-mail at [log in to unmask] for information on how to register for WebEx
access to the class.
