Share this post:

As we near the end of 2023, the Law Library of Congress is excited to announce that we will be continuing to offer more educational webinars in the new year. The Law Library of Congress’s next offering in its Orientation to Legal Research Webinar Series will provide an overview of U.S. statutory and legislative research. Additionally, the Law Library will offer another entry of the Orientation to Law Library Collections Webinar Series, featuring a guest presentation from the staff of the Hawai’i State Law Library as part of the State Law Libraries Outreach Project. The purpose of the State Law Libraries Outreach Project is to strengthen the ties between the Law Library of Congress and state law libraries by sharing information about our collections, products, and services with one another and with the public. We hope you will join us!
