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, March 19th from 2:00 to
3:15 pm for a training session entitled "The ProQuest Congressional
Database: Introduction and New Features" part of our series of free training
 sessions at the DOI Library.

The ProQuest Congressional service (available to DOI employees at their
desktops through the Library's website), 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 access and use digitized collections of these materials;
featuring searchable access to current and historic Congressional reports,
Congressional hearings, Congressional Research Service (and earlier
Legislative Reference Service) reports, as well as Congressional Committee
Prints. 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

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
