Hi Everyone –

I just wanted to send an e-mail to invite you and your staffs to the Department of the Interior Library on Tuesday, February 1st from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm for a training session entitled “The National Technical Reports Library: Introduction and New Features,” part of our series of free training sessions at the DOI Library.

The National Technical Information Service’s National Technical Reports Library (NTRL) is an online subscription database accessible to Interior Department employees at their desktops through the DOI Library’s website. The NTRL provides users with access to an electronic library of over 2 million bibliographic records for scientific and technical reports produced by the federal government dating back to 1964. They also provide links to over 600,000 full text scientific and technical government reports that they have digitized in PDF format. The NTRL is a useful tool for members of the business, government, and academic communities as it provides a solution to locating the results of billions of dollars of federal research on a wide variety of topics, including Chemistry, Energy, Environment, Health Care, Medicine & Biology, Physics, and Transportation. Attendees will learn how to effectively search through this database to locate needed government reports, including those published by Interior Department bureaus and agencies. This program will be conducted by a National Technical Information Service trainer.

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 is limited so please contact the Library by e-mail to let us know you will be coming. For more information about future DOI Library Training Sessionsms, we encourage you to visit our Training Sessions website .

We hope to see you here on February 1st!
