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, August 19th from 2:00 to
4:00 pm for a free DOI Library Training Session on "The Gale Directory and
Virtual Reference Libraries."

Gale Group, part of Cengage Learning, is known for publishing authoritative
directories on companies, publishers, associations, and more. Gale is now
able to provide these resources to the Interior Department in a digital
format via the Gale Directory Library. Additionally, Gale’s new Virtual
Reference Library is also providing DOI personnel with electronic,
full-text access to authoritative reference titles on subjects such as
American Indians, the environment, American history, law, and natural
science. Attendees to this session will learn how to search a single
directory or e-book, or the entire collection of each of these databases.
The ability to cross-search, generate lists, analyze trends, and export
citations from these online collections will also be examined. This class
will be taught by a Gale Group 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.    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 August 19th!
