Hi Everyone -
I just wanted to send an e-mail to invite you and your staffs to the
Department of the Interior Library on Tuesday, February 14th from 2:00 to
4:00 pm for a training session entitled "Advanced Legal Research on Lexis"
part of our series of free training sessions at the DOI Library.
This program builds on the techniques presented in the "LexisNexis:
Introduction and New Features" class, emphasizing time-efficient and
cost-effective searching. Legal researchers attending the class will be
shown new methods that can be used to obtain supporting caselaw, statutes,
law review and newspaper articles, as well as federal and state
administrative materials. Participants will learn about advanced search
techniques to make their research more efficient and hear about recently
introduced services. The class will also cover choosing appropriate search
types, Boolean operators and search syntax, and refining search results
with limiters and search edit options. Instruction includes general search
construction as well as techniques and options unique to the LexisNexis
platform. Attendees will discover new tools to help them keep track of
their research and monitor developing areas of law. They will also be given
a look at the new "Lexis Advance" search platform. This program will be
conducted by a LexisNexis 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

access to the class.
