DOI Library Training Session – “Introduction to Congress.gov” – Wednesday, August 7th, 10:00 am

Originally posted on FEDLIB – Federal Librarians Discussion List

Congress.gov, the successor to THOMAS.gov, is the new online resource for accessing free, fact-based United States legislative information. It is a collaborative effort by the Library of Congress, Senate, House of Representatives, and the Government Printing Office. Researchers can now search across all of the content in the system, refine their results, quickly see the status of a bill on a timeline, and view the new Member pages with sponsored and co-sponsored legislation. Additionally, the system is designed to dynamically fit any size screen being used, mobile, notebook, and/or computer. For many, a key feature is the use of durable URLs assigned to specific documents found in the database. Congress.gov is presently in the beta stage, so information from THOMAS is being migrated over in stages. The Congressional Record and the detailed list of Congressional actions per legislative bill were recently added. Other data, such as committee reports, nominations, and treaty information from the Senate Foreign Relations committee will be incorporated over time. When the migration is complete in late 2014, the older, more fragile THOMAS.gov will be retired.

 

Please join Pamela Barnes Craig, Senior Legal Reference Librarian at the Law Library of Congress, for an introduction to the new Congress.gov website, its current and planned resources, and tips on how to best navigate this valuable online legislative service.

 All that are interested are invited.  The DOI Library is located in the Main Interior Building, located at 1849 C Street, NW, Room 1151 in Washington.  Space for the program is limited so please go to the following link to register:

"Ike and Dutch: Mentor, Protégé, and Common Sense by Dr. Gene Kopelson" presentation at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center

Published on Feb 24, 2017

As Ronald Reagan traveled across the United States campaigning for the highest office in the land, the Governor of California possessed an ace in his hand unmatched by his opponents: the ear and advice of former president Dwight D. Eisenhower. Reagan was in constant contact with Ike, following his advice at every turn and going so far as to base his entire 1966 campaign on his mentor’s own successful run years before. Eisenhower’s astute view of internal Washington politics, foreign affairs, military matters, and the swirling pool of primary rivals, provided his protégé the fuel he needed to learn, and eventually win, the war of words. In his latest book, Reagan’s 1968 Dress Rehearsal: Ike, RFK, and Reagan’s Emergence as a World Statesman, Dr. Gene Kopelson outlines the story of Reagan’s first presidential bid with an in-depth look behind the scenes. On Wednesday, February 15, 2017 at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Dr. Kopelson gave a lecture titled, “Ike and Dutch: Mentor, Protégé, and Common Sense,” to delve deeper into the relationship between Reagan and his mentor and how it not only shaped Reagan’s future campaigns, but his presidency, as well.

In his lecture at the USAHEC, Dr. Kopelson uses never-before-tapped audio clips, interviews with the original 1968 campaign staff, Eisenhower’s personal diary, and material straight from personal correspondence to show how Eisenhower influenced Reagan’s politics and eventually, his far-reaching presidential policies. From Reagan’s hawkish views on Vietnam to his perspective on the Arab-Israeli situation, his groundbreaking steps with Gorbachev and the Soviets to nuclear defense, Eisenhower and Reagan had a close and personal relationship which changed America’s future.
