    Hi Everyone -

    I just wanted to send an e-mail to invite you and your staffs to participate via webinar in a free Department of the Interior Library Training Session entitled "Introduction to the Congress.gov Website" on Wednesday, April 20th from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm ET, part of our series of free training sessions available from the DOI Library.

    Congress.gov is a collaborative effort amongst the Library of Congress, the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives and the Government Publishing Office to provide an official website for federal legislative information. It is a free resource that provides searchable access to bill statuses and summaries, bill texts, member profiles, the Congressional Record, committee reports, legislative process videos, and committee profile pages. Researchers can search across all of the content in the system, refine their results, quickly see the status of a bill on a timeline, and view member pages with sponsored and co-sponsored legislation. Additionally, the system is designed to dynamically fit any size screen being used, mobile phone, notebook, and/or computer. Please join librarians from the Law Library of Congress, for an introduction to the Congress.gov website, its current and planned resources, and tips on how to best navigate this valuable online legislative service.

    All that are interested are invited. Please go to the following link to request webinar registration information:
