21st Century Library: U.S. legislative research

Need to find the Congressional intent behind a statute (legislative history)? Read the testimony of a witness (such as Barry Bonds) in a Congressional hearing? Discover who the experts are and what they have to say about specific issues (global climate change).

Congressional Universe is one of the best research tools around to sort through Congressional bills, reports, hearings, and prints. 21st Century Library is holding a workshop next week to demonstrate Congressional Universe. It has material that is not on Lexis or Westlaw. If you are writing a paper this is one resource you don't want to miss.

You have choice of days to attend as we are giving 3 classes. You do not have to sign up. Just Come! All workshops are held in the lower level computer lab.

See you next week!
