    Colleagues,  Searching within the Government Publications Office (GPO) is much easier if you take a few moments to view the Govinfo Webcasts, especially something as intricate as the U.S. Congressional Serial Set. It would be beneficial to browse through the other webcast offerings, too.  These tutorials seem to be available via Vimeo.
