Hi Everyone -

I just wanted to send an e-mail to invite you and your staffs to the
Department of the Interior Library on Wednesday, February 5th from 2:00 pm
to 3:15 pm for a training session entitled "Introduction to FDsys: The
GPO's Online Portal to Federal Government Documents" part of our series of
free training sessions at the DOI Library.

The GPO's Federal Digital System (FDsys) provides free online access to
official publications from all three branches of the Federal Government.
Through FDsys, users are able to search for documents and publications via
advanced search capabilities and are able to refine and narrow their search
for quick access to needed information. They can also browse for documents
and publications by collection, Congressional committee, date, and
Government author; access metadata about documents and publications; and
download documents and publications in multiple renditions or file formats.
With FDsys, users can download a single file or download content and
metadata packaged together in a compressed file. Attendees to this session,
taught by a GPO trainer, will learn the basics and background of FDsys,
including information on how to navigate the site, what resources are
available to users, and instruction on important features such as basic
searching, browsing, the help function, and more.

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 for the program is limited so please go to the following
link to register:

Please note that this class is not being offered as a simultaneous online
