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).
