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 10th from 2:00 to
3:15 pm for a training session entitled "Legislative History Research Using
Library Resources," part of our series of free training sessions at
the DOI Library.

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. Attendees will learn how to use print and
electronic resources available in the DOI Library to conduct legislative
history research. Included will be a look at how to put together a
legislative history using resources such as the the GPO's FDsys website,
Congress.gov, U.S. Congressional Serial Set (print and online editions),
Congressional Record, HeinOnline, and the ProQuest Congressional
Collections. This program will be conducted by Reference Librarian Jennifer
Klang.

All that are interested are invited.  Please note that the temporary 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 in the Library is limited so please go to the following link to
register:

  However, please note that this class is also being offered as a
simultaneous online webinar for those that can't attend in person.  Please
