The Orientation to Legal Research Series of webinars are designed to give a basic introduction to legal sources and research techniques. These orientations, taught by legal reference librarians, are typically offered once a month on a rotating basis, from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm.
This entry in the series provides an overview of U.S. federal legislative history resources, including information about the methods of identifying and locating them. In tackling this area of research, the focus will largely be on finding these documents online. We will be highlighting freely-available governmental websites like Congress.gov, govinfo, and Law.gov, and quickly touch on subscription databases that can be accessed at one’s local public law or academic library.
