The Paul V. Galvin Library will be a remote host for a free training session entitled “Mastering Federal Regulations,”on Wednesday August 24 from 1-2:15 p.m. The training will be conducted at the Department of the Interior (DOI) Library in Washington, D.C., and available at Galvin in their Library Learning Center as a live webinar.
Session summary: The process of researching the intricacies of federal regulations may seem on the surface to be a daunting task. However, by using a step-by-step procedure to follow them from when they are enacted through official publication, researchers can get a grasp on how the process works. This class will teach attendees how to track the history of regulations. Beginning with the enactment of a law, you will follow regulations as they become part of the Code of Federal Regulations. Real examples – drawn from the Wilderness Act – will also demonstrate how to move from statute to regulation as well as how to use the parallel table of authorities and rules. This useful and interesting presentation will improve your research skills and refresh your knowledge of the executive branch regulations process. Join the library’s Head of Reference Services, Jennifer Klang, as she shows you how to master federal regulations.
