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, June 5th from 2:00 to
3:15 pm for a training session entitled "Introduction to WestlawNext"
part of our series of free training sessions at the DOI Library.
Thomson Reuters WestlawNext online legal research service permits
users to search for legal, legislative, news, and business content
without first selecting a database, allowing one to click checkboxes
to select the jurisdiction and nature of material wanted. Its new
search algorithm, referred to as WestSearch, is perhaps the world's
most advanced legal research engine, executing a federated search
across multiple content types. Users can enter descriptive terms or
Boolean connectors and select a jurisdiction. Search results are
ranked by relevance. WestlawNext also supports retrieving documents by
citation, party name, or KeyCite reference. An overview page enables
users to see the top results per content type, or to view all results
for a particular content type. Filters can also be applied to refine
the result list even further. On the results page, users can also see
links to related secondary sources relevant to their research.
WestlawNext also provides folders for storing and sharing portions of
the research selected by the user. Attendees will be taught by a
Thomson Reuters trainer how to maneuver through this new,
user-friendly platform to find the search results they need.
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 for the program is limited so please go to the
following link to register:
