Share this post:

In March, the Law Library of Congress is excited to offer more educational webinars. There will be another Orientation to Law Library Collections webinar featuring the Maryland Thurgood Marshall State Law Library as part of our 50 State Outreach Initiative. The Law Library of Congress’s next offering in its Orientation to Legal Research Webinar Series will provide an overview of U.S. federal legislative history. This entry in the series aims to provide a better understanding of U.S. federal legislative history resources, including information about the methods of identifying and locating them. We hope you will join us for these two webinar offerings and the many to follow!
