    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, October 9th from 2;00 to 3:00 pm ET for a free training session entitled "Introduction to Congress.gov," part of our series of free training sessions at 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 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.
