UC Berkeley Library's Congressional Research Tutorials

Cornell Law Library's InSITE current awareness
service for 4/21/2008 brings our attention to the
video tutorials on congressional research prepared by
librarians at the University of California (Berkeley)

Tutorials include: how to find bills from 1989 to
present (Thomas), how to find a report (LexisNexis
Congressional), how to find debates from 1873 to present
in print (Congressional Record), how to find debates from
1989 to present online (Thomas), and how to contact your
federal representatives (Senate and House web pages).
The videos run between 2 - 5 minutes each.
