    Hi Everyone -

    I just wanted to send an e-mail to invite you and your staffs to the Department of the Interior Library on Thursday, January 9th from 2:00 to 3:00 pm ET for a free training session entitled "News Searching on the New Nexis," part of our series of free training sessions at the DOI Library.

    The Nexis online database provides access to over 40,000 premium and online news archives and business sources. It delivers a collection of competitive intelligence sources curated by research experts, so users spend less time vetting results for actionable data. In this course, a LexisNexis trainer will cover how to do news research on the upgraded Nexis for Lexis Advance. We will examine basic, categorical, and power searching. Additionally, we will discuss working with search results, creating custom sources using individual publications, negative news searching, news alerts (publication and search query), and creating the right search query using sources, pre-search filters, and the word wheel.

    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 go to the following link to register:

However, please note that this class is also being offered as a simultaneous online webinar for those that can't attend in person. When you register, please indicate the name of the program you wish to attend and if you need information about webinar access.
