21st Century Library

We are holding a series of workshops the week of April 4th highlighting locating and retrieving federal and state government information. You know it must be out there, but how to find it?

Monday, April 4th 12:10 - 1:00 PM: The topic is government websites including United States, New York and other states. Government sites offer a wealth of information and some of the resources available on these sites are part of the invisible web that you will not find using google.

Monday, April 4th 5:10 - 6:00 PM: Congressional Universe is a wonderful tool for U.S. Congressional research. Need to find a federal legislative history, what an expert has to say about a subject or trace the development of
the debate on a topic over the years? This is the database for you!

Wednesday, April 6th 11:10 - 12 noon: Will repeat the Congressional Universe workshop. This really is a great resource!

Wednesday, April 6th 12:10 - 1:00 Statistics on the Web: the focus will be on government sources but others may be shown. Don't rely on a newspaper article for your statistics, go to the source. Discover the statistics
on labor, income, demographics and much more.
