Hi Everyone -

I just wanted to send an e-mail to invite you and your staffs to the
Department of the Interior Library on Tuesday, August 13th from 10:00 to
11:00 am ET for a free training session entitled "Introduction to Westlaw,"
part of our series of free training sessions at the DOI Library.

Westlaw is an online legal research service for lawyers and legal
researchers. Information resources on Westlaw include more than 40,000
databases of case law, state and federal statutes, administrative codes,
newspaper and magazine articles, public records, law journals, law reviews,
treatises, legal forms and other information resources. Westlaw collates
and indexes content from almost every category of American jurisprudence,
including administrative case decisions and case law; arbitration
information; statutes and court rules; court orders; trial transcripts and
briefs; and legal encyclopedias, treatises, and reviews. The system also
indexes current news on topics that would be of interest to attorneys and
paralegals. It even lets users track legislation in process and access
reviews and reports from experts about the implications of decisions made
in the courts. Those attending this class will be shown how to maneuver
through Westlaw’s user-friendly platform to find requested search topics
and results.

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
