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, July 27th from 2:00 to
3:15 pm for a training session entitled "Locating Interior Department
Documents Using ELIPS" part of our series of free training sessions at
the DOI Library.

The Electronic Library of Interior Policies (ELIPS), located on the
Internet at, is a searchable database of official
policies, procedures, programs, and functions of the bureaus and offices of
the Department of the Interior. Please join us at this training session to
learn the most effective and efficient ways to navigate ELIPS and other
sources of DOI Departmental Manuals to access the documents you need,
including current and archived materials. This class will cover what can be
found on ELIPS, how to search when you have certain pieces of information,
and other possible sources for Departmental Manual documents and
Secretary’s Orders on the web and in the Library. Come with questions or
send questions in advance to the Law Librarian.

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
