Hi Everyone -

I just wanted to send an e-mail to invite you and your staffs to the
Department of the Interior Library on Thursday, September 3rd from 2:00 to
4:00 pm for a free DOI Library Training Session entitled "Westlaw:
Introduction and New Features."

Thomson/West's Westlaw legal and legislative online database (available at
no charge on the patron workstations at the DOI Library) provides access to
state and federal statutes, case law materials, public records, and other
legal resources. The West Key Number System, provided on Westlaw, is the
master classification system of U.S. law, claimed to be "the only
recognized legal taxonomy". Its 16,000 databases not only contain legal
information, but access to hundreds of full-text newspaper and magazine
articles as well. In this session, a Westlaw training professional will
teach you how to utilize Westlaw for your reference and research needs,
introducing you to these databases and highlighting newly added features
that make Westlaw an even more user-friendly research tool.

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.    For more information about future DOI Library Training Sessions,
we encourage you to visit our Training Sessions website at

We hope to see you here on September 3rd!
