Apr'15: The US Congressional Serial Set - Volumes of Congressional Oversight, Investigation, and Negotiation (FDLP)

Thursday, April 9, 2015  /  2:00 pm Eastern

The U.S. Congressional Serial Set is often cited as being the jewel of many a library collection. This historic series records much of the work done in Congressional committees and on the floors of Congress – including oversight of Government programs and agencies, investigations, and documentation of the negotiations needed among the chambers to pass legislation. In this webinar we’ll learn how to find Serial Set titles in GPO’s Federal Digital System (FDsys). We’ll also learn how libraries may receive or provide online access to one or more of the titles, and options for organizing the series in various formats in libraries. Finally, we’ll wrap up by discussing how to translate the various citations that you may come across when doing reference work.
