If you’re looking for an introduction or quick refresher on the Congress.gov resource, the Law Library of Congress has a free webinar scheduled for next week. For those who teach legislation, Congress.gov also has a great collection of short videos on the legislative process that are available here.
You can register for the webinar here, with details also reproduced below:
Congress.gov, the successor to THOMAS.gov, was launched Sept. 19, 2012. This orientation is designed to give a basic overview of the website. While the focus of the session will be searching legislation and the Congressional member information attached to the legislation, the new features of Congress.gov will be highlighted as well.
