In November, the Law Library of Congress will present webinars on federal statutes and an orientation to the Law Library’s collections. Attendees at the federal statutes webinar will have the opportunity to learn about the legislative process and how to trace federal statutes from their publication in the U.S. Code to their origins as bills. Participants will also learn about the difference between public and private laws, how to conduct research using free online resources, and other useful tips and tricks.
The webinar on the orientation to the Library’s collections will also provide instruction on using the Law Library’s print and online collections. More information about the contents of each class can be found below.
