Go Back to School with Schoolhouse Rock!

MinitexJoin Minitex and the University of Minnesota Libraries Regional Depository Library in new webinar series, Go Back to School with Schoolhouse Rock!. This series will focus on the three branches of the U.S. federal government.

Tuesday, October 13, 2015
2:00 PM–3:00 PM (Central Time)

This webinar will focus on the legislative process and locating legislative resources. Before the session, learners will watch Just a Bill from Schoolhouse Rock!. Riegelman and Beck will elaborate on the content in the video and use it to test your knowledge. By starting with this video intended for an elementary audience, we will layer on more advanced content about the legislative process as well as guidance on tools that are available. Meet us in this liminal space as we transition from novices to experts.

Attendees will be able to identify the steps that a bill takes to become a law (and the pitfalls in between!). An understanding of the legislative process as well as an awareness of the freely available and fee-based tools will help attendees tackle challenging patron inquiries about legislative information.

Presenters:
Amy Riegelman
University of Minnesota Librarian of Government Information, Psychology, Educational Psychology, and Child Development

Lynne Beck
