    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 Westlaw Edge," on Wednesday, November 18th from 10:00 am to 11:00 am ET, part of our series of free training sessions at the DOI Library.

    Powered by state-of-the-art artificial intelligence that's built upon more than 100 years of attorney-edited annotations, the new Westlaw Edge legal and legislative research platform brings together a full suite of AI-powered legal research tools. These new tools include: 1) WestSearch Plus, which uses Artificial Intelligence to help users quickly access relevant resources, as well as offering suggested answers to many legal questions; 2) Litigation Analytics, which provides data-driven insights on judges, courts, attorneys, law firms, and case types; 3) KeyCite Overruling Risk, which provides a citator warning to caution users when a point of law in a case has been implicitly undermined without being explicitly overruled, a situation that traditional citators do not identify; and 4) Statutes Compare and Regulations Compare, which allows users to compare two versions of a statute or federal regulation to identify changes over time. Our Westlaw trainer will join us to review these and other features of this newly purchased database (now available for patron use at the DOI Library).

    All that are interested are invited. Please note that this class will only be offered via online WebEx webinar. Please go to the following link to request registration and webinar access information:
