CIS/Index Law Tutorial
This week's tutorial will be on researching
federal legislative history using the CIS/Index. The CIS/Index is
used to find hearings, prints, reports and other Congressional documents
as far back as 1970. You can find the tutorial schedule posted in the entry
way of the library. There is no need to sign up to attend; just come to
the Reference Desk at the scheduled time. If you have questions or suggestions
regarding tutorials, please email Liz Robb (EROBB).

The 7th floor display commemorates the work of Martin Luther King Jr.,
and the 6th floor display pays tribute to A. Leon Higginbotham Jr., distinguished
jurist and educator.
