*Community and Fundamentals - Legislative History Research 101 - Sponsored
by LexisNexis*

In order to find the legislative intent of a bill or public law,
researchers need to compile reports, testimony, debate, and other materials
related to that piece of legislation to find keys as to what Congress hoped
to accomplish by passing the bill. The final compilation of all these
materials provides the researcher with a “legislative history” of the bill
or law in question and hopefully will answer the question of what Congress
intended with this legislation*.  Department of the Interior Law Librarian
Maureen Booth *will teach attendees how to use a number of online
electronic resources to put together a legislative history for specific
pieces of legislation.

When: May 7, 12 -1:30pm EST
