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 register:


We do prefer that you attend in person here at the DOI Library if you can.   However, please note that this class is also being offered as a simultaneous online webinar for those that can't attend in person.  Please indicate on the online registration form if you wish to obtain information about webinar access to this program.
