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 2nd from 2:00 to
3:15 pm for a training session entitled "Advanced Legal Research on Lexis
Advance," part of our series of free training sessions at the DOI Library.

This program builds on the techniques presented in the “Lexis Advance:
Introduction and New Features” class, emphasizing time-efficient and
cost-effective searching. Legal researchers attending the class will be
shown new methods that can be used to obtain supporting caselaw, statutes,
law review and newspaper articles, as well as federal and state
administrative materials. Participants will learn about advanced search
techniques to make their research more efficient and hear about recently
introduced services. The class will also cover choosing appropriate search
types, Boolean operators and search syntax, and refining search results
with limiters and search edit options. Instruction includes general search
construction as well as techniques and options unique to the Lexis Advance
platform. In addition, attendees will discover new tools to help them keep
track of their research and monitor developing areas of law. This program
will be conducted by a LexisNexis trainer.

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

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

Additionally, Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit is being offered to
Interior Department Solicitor's office staff that attend this session, in
person or via webinar.  Attached are two spreadsheets listing the states
issuing CLE credit for in-person attendance and those issuing credit for
webinar attendance.  When registering using the link above, let us know if
