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, January 31st from 2:00 to 3:15 pm for a training session entitled "Readex's U.S. Congressional Serial Set - Digital Edition: Introduction and New Features," part of our series of free training sessions at the DOI Library.

Perhaps the single most important series of American government publications, the U.S. Congressional Serial Set is an incomparably rich, largely untapped collection of primary source material on the people, issues and events of American history and politics. Readex's digital edition of this national treasure—the Reports, Documents and Journals of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives—could be the most accurate and complete replica available. Presenting every publication from the 15th Congress through the 103rd Congress, including items missing from other editions, the Readex U.S. Congressional Serial Set contains over 415,000 individual documents in more than 14,000 volumes. This class will introduce attendees to this valuable online resource and provide them with helpful hints for searching the collection. This program will be conducted by a Readex 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 on January 31st!
