Please join representatives of ProQuest either onsite or via Webex for this very interesting offering:

Using ProQuest®  Congressional Digital Suite to Research Legislative History a FEDLINK Webex presented by Daryl Newhouse, Esq., ProQuest Government Information Services.

This 90-minute session is designed for the government professional, including librarians, attorneys, law clerks, interns, analysts, and legal researchers, to learn how to use ProQuest Congressional Digital Suite & Legislative Insight, the premier legal research tools for federal legislative and government materials to:

1. Develop an understanding of the legislative process both:

a. Procedurally – How did the language read as first proposed, what committees considered the proposal, when were amendments made and where was the proposal when it was amended;

b. As an adversarial process – who was lobbying in support of the proposal and what were they trying to accomplish, who was active in opposition what were their objections, who was responsible for amendments to the proposal;

2. Become familiar with the documents available that are pertinent to your issue and learn how to search and find those documents on the PQ Congressional and Legislative Insight platforms;

3. Identify where in the process the changes you care about occurred;

4. Learn how to identify both direct and circumstantial evidence of intent.

When: Wednesday, August 17th -- 9:30am - 11:00am EDT with a repeat at 1:30pm - 3:00pm EDT

Where: This will be offered live at the FLICC/FEDLINK Training Room at the Library of Congress Adams Building (2nd Floor Room 216, 2nd & Independence Ave., SE, Washington, DC) as well as via Webinar for those of you outside of the Washington, DC area.
