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, September 7th from 2:00 to 3:15 pm for a training session entitled "The National Technical Reports Library: Introduction and New Features" part of our series of free training sessions at the DOI Library.

Worldwide searching for federally funded bibliographic science and technology research information is now free on the basic Public Access National Technical Reports Library (NTRL) website. The Public Access NTRL is open to all users (domestic and international) for search and discovery  Public Access NTRL gives users access to a searchable online database of approximately three million Federal science and technology reports published by the National Technical Information Service. The full text for 800,000 of these documents can be downloaded immediately in electronic PDF format without charge. Free registration is required to download the reports. Attendees to this session will learn how to effectively search through this database to locate official government reports, including many published by Interior Department bureaus and offices. This program will be conducted by a National Technical Information Service 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.
