Flyer announcing upcoming webinar created by Susan Taylor-Pikulsky

This is a guest blog post by our Librarian-in-Residence, Louis Myers. Louis has recently authored blog posts for In Custodia Legis, including Research Guides in Focus – Municipal Codes: A Beginner’s Guide and Research Guides in Focus – Neighbor Law: A Beginner’s Guide.

The Law Library of Congress is proud to introduce a new webinar series coming to the Legal Research Institute, the Lunch and Learn series. This series will be collections-focused and will be held every other month. This webinar series will be particularly interesting to people researching U.S. government documents.

As part of this new series, the Law Library is excited to present a webinar on the U.S. Congressional Serial Set. The inaugural webinar, How to Conduct Research in the U.S. Serial Set Online, will be on February 9, 2021, at 11 a.m. EST. The Law Library has commenced a collaboration with the Government Publishing Office to digitize the entire Serial Set, which contains over 16,000 volumes. The project began in 2019 and is expected to be completed over the next several years. In the meantime, there are a variety of tools available online that can be used to perform research in this resource. The webinar presentation will focus on examples of using the Serial Set for a variety of research topics, and will highlight different free search tools that are available to the public.

The presentation will be provided by Louis Myers, the current Librarian-in-Residence for the Law Library of Congress. Louis holds an MLIS from the Kent State University iSchool and a JD from the University of Idaho College of Law.

To register, please send an email to [email protected] with the name of the webinar in the subject line.
