Hi Everyone -
I just wanted to send an e-mail to invite you and your staffs to the Department of the Interior Library on Thursday, July 18th from 2:00 to 3:15 pm for a training session entitled "Advanced Legal Research on Lexis Advance" part of our series of free training sessions at the DOI Library.
This program builds on the techniques presented in the “Lexis Advance: Introduction and New Features” class, emphasizing time-efficient and cost-effective searching. Legal researchers attending the class will be shown new methods that can be used to obtain supporting caselaw, statutes, law review and newspaper articles, as well as federal and state administrative materials. Participants will learn about advanced search techniques to make their research more efficient and hear about recently introduced services. The class will also cover choosing appropriate search types, Boolean operators and search syntax, and refining search results with limiters and search edit options. Instruction includes general search construction as well as techniques and options unique to the Lexis Advance platform. Attendees will also discover new tools to help them keep track of their research and monitor developing areas of law. This program will be conducted by a LexisNexis trainer.
All that are interested are invited. The DOI Library is located in the Main Interior Building, located at 1849 C Street, NW, Room 1151 in Washington. Space is limited so please go to the following link to register: Registration Link.
Please note that this class is also being offered to remote users as a simultaneous online webinar via WebEx. Please indicate on the online registration form if you wish to register for WebEx access to the program.
You may also contact the Library by e-mail to let us know you will be coming. For more information about future DOI Library Training Sessions, we encourage you to visit our Training Sessions website at http://www.doi.gov/library/programs/training.cfm.
We hope that you can attend either in person or virtually on July 18th!
