    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 "Readex's U.S. Congressional Serial Set Database" on Thursday, February 9th from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm ET, part of our series of free training sessions available from the DOI Library.

    The single most important series of American government documents, the U.S. Congressional Serial Set is an incomparably rich source of primary and secondary material on the people, issues and events of the United States. Spanning nearly two centuries of American and world history, this monumental collection-the Reports, Documents and Journals of the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives-covers myriad subjects ranging from slavery in Antebellum America and the expansion of the American West and the impeachment of presidents to the founding of the United Nations, public and private legislation, and more. Presenting every cameral publication from the 15th through 103rd Congress, the Readex U.S. Congressional Serial Set, 1817-1994, provides more than 370,000 individual documents originally bound in 14,000 volumes. This class, conducted by a Readex trainer, will introduce attendees to this valuable online resource and provide them with helpful hints for searching the collection.
