FEDLINK Orientation to Federal Libraries and Information Centers Series: The Department of the Interior Library The Department of the Interior Library (the 2017 GPO Federal Depository Library of the Year) strives to be the leading research institution for Interior Department staffers, other federal government officials, and nongovernmental researchers seeking information in subject areas related to the Department of the Interior. Its collection includes materials on topics such as Native American culture and history, American history, National Parks, geology, nature, wildlife management, water management, and public lands management. The Interior Library also houses a large collection of federal legal and legislative materials. Additionally, the Interior Library's collection of online databases and other electronic information sources, available through the Library's website (http://www.doi.gov/library), enables Interior Department personnel and other Library patrons to access needed information sources from their desktop computers. The Interior Library's resources are also available to the general public and are used by students, educators, authors, law firms, and researchers. This program will include a brief presentation on the history of the Library, a look at the resources available through the Library's website, a tour of our newly renovated and modernized facility, and a guided journey through the historic murals in the Stewart L. Udall Department of the Interior Building. Date Thursday, December 14, 2017 Time 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm (Please plan to arrive by 1:45 pm to check in at the visitor guard station).
