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, November 28th from 10:00
to 11:15 am ET for a free training session entitled "Westlaw: Introduction
and New Features," part of our series of free training sessions at
the DOI Library.

Thomson Reuters Westlaw online legal research service permits users to
search for legal, legislative, news, and business content without first
selecting a database, allowing one to click check boxes to select the
jurisdiction and nature of material requested. Its search algorithm is
perhaps the world's most advanced legal research engine, executing a
federated search across multiple content types. Users can enter descriptive
terms or Boolean connectors and select a jurisdiction. Westlaw also
supports retrieving documents by citation, party name, or KeyCite
reference. An overview page enables users to see the top results per
content type, or to view all results for a particular content type. Those
attending this training session will learn the basics of using Westlaw for
legal research. This class covers the fundamentals of using Westlaw's
tools, features, and content and will help legal researchers to develop
effective search strategies.

All that are interested are invited.  Please note that the DOI Library is
located in Room 1151 of the Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior
Building, just off the C Street entrance lobby. 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

simultaneous online webinar for those that can't attend in person.  When
