Hi Everyone -

I just wanted to send an e-mail to invite you and your staffs to the
Department of the Interior Library on Tuesday, February 24th from 2:00 to
3:15 pm for a training session entitled "ProQuest's Legislative Insight
Part B (1789-1960): Introduction and New Features" part of our series of
free training sessions at the DOI Library.

ProQuest's Legislative Insight is a Federal legislative history service
that makes available thoroughly researched compilations of digital full
text publications created by Congress during the process leading up to the
enactment of U.S. Public Laws. This collection is comprised of fully
searchable PDFs of full-text copies of the Public Law itself, all versions
of related bills, law-specific Congressional Record excerpts, committee
hearings, reports, and prints. Also included are Presidential signing
statements and miscellaneous congressional publications that provide
background material to aid in the understanding of issues related to the
making of the law. The DOI Library provides Interior Department staff with
access to Part B of the Legislative Insight collection, which focuses on
laws passed prior to 1929 but also includes additional laws from 1929-1960
not included in Part A of the collection. A ProQuest trainer will introduce
class attendees to the contents of this collection and how to effectively
and efficiently search for materials required for legislative history
research.

All that are interested are invited.  Please note that the new DOI Library is
located in Room 2262 of the Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior
Building. The Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior Building is
located at 1849 C Street, NW in Washington, DC.  Space for the program is
