Hello -

I just wanted to send an e-mail to invite you and your staffs to the
Department of the Interior Library on Wednesday, May 30th at 2:00 pm for
our next DOI Library Training Session, an "Introduction to the U.S.
Congressional Serial Set - Digital Edition."

The U.S. Congressional Serial Set - the bound, sequentially numbered
volumes of all the Reports, Documents, and Journals of the U.S. Senate and
House of Representatives dating back to 1817 - constitutes an incomparably
rich collection of primary source material on all aspects of American
history.  The Serial Set has proven invaluable to the research of U.S.
political, social, cultural, military and ethnic history, as well as
international relations, explorations, genealogy, commerce, industrial
development and much more. Its contents come not only from the U.S.
Congress, but also include key Executive Department publications.

The Congressional Serial Set has now been digitized by Readex and is
available to Department of the Interior personnel through the DOI Library's
web site (  This class will introduce you to this
valuable online resource and provide attendees with valuable hints for
searching the treasures of this collection.  This program will be conducted
by a Readex 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.  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.    We hope to
see you then!
