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, October  from 2:00 to 3:15
pm for a training session entitled "ProQuest Congressional: Introduction
and New Features," part of our series of free training sessions at the DOI

The ProQuest Congressional Database provides users with efficient, targeted
access to a comprehensive online collection of historic and current
congressional information. This collection includes the full text of
congressional publications, finding aids, a bill tracking service, and the
full text of public laws and other research materials to enable both novice
and experienced researchers to complete many types of research projects
using a single, user-friendly interface.  Attendees to this class will
learn how to utilize ProQuest Congressional’s new user platform to search
through digitized collections of materials such as current and historic
Congressional reports, hearings, and prints as well as Congressional
Research Service reports.  They will also learn search techniques that can
be used to locate digitized copies of these materials, essential in
conducting thorough legislative history research. This program will be
conducted by a ProQuest 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.    *Please Note: This class is also being offered to remote users
as a simultaneous online webinar via WebEx. Please contact the DOI Library
by e-mail at [log in to unmask] for information on how to register for WebEx
access to the class.

We hope that you can attend either in person or virtually on November 8th!
