Please join representatives from  ProQuest for their presentation of the ProQuest Congressional Information Service!

 

When: March 27th, 2012, 9:30 - 11:30 and repeat at 1:30- 3:30

Where: LC FEDLINK Training Room, John Adams Bldg., Rm LA216

Registration; please e-mail Jim Oliver, [log in to unmask], to  register for either session.

Please forward to colleagues who might have an interest in the content.

 

9:30 - 10:15 – ProQuest Legislative Insight – comprehensive legislative histories for enacted legislation from 1929 to present including the full text PDFs of all supporting documents (e.g. every related bill, presidential signing statements) with NEW Bluebook citation automatic formatting!

 

10:15 – 11:00 – ProQuest Statistical Insight & Datasets– the last statistical aggregator left standing ProQuest Statistical Insight not only encompasses a world of statistical information using one common interface, but it takes you directly to the data you need. Instead of relying on the limited capabilities of free-text searching (which is particularly ineffective with the tabular format of statistical data) or wading through large text documents to find the statistics you need (or worse, wading through a large text document to find it does NOT have the statistics you need), ProQuest Statistical Insight allows you to go straight to the tables, or to easily find the right publication with the right series of tables. ProQuest Statistical Datasets is a data visualization tool that offers research content on a variety of topics from sub-prime mortgages, to economic factors, healthcare, traffic data, and more, making it a must for any researcher.

 

11:00 – 11:30 – ProQuest History Vault – indexed and full text searchable PDF’s of important historical documents such as DOJ Peonage Files 1901-1945, FBI Black Panther Party, CIA Records on the Cold War, Documents of the National Security Council, JFK National Security Files, and NAACP files.

 

Repeat at 1:30, 2:15 and 3:00

 

Thanks and look forward to seeing you on the 27th,
