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