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 program in the Library is limited so please go to the following link to register:
