Westlaw & the Federal Register

Tuesday, February 12, 2019
10:30am - 12:00pm
Reading Room (HCHB Room 1894)


 In this 30-minute training session Westlaw's Sarah Hornbeck will cover:

  • Accessing the Federal Register, including current and historical versions going back to 1936;
  • Creating alerts so you will automatically be notified via email of proposed rules of interest;
  • Searching the CFR by title and topic, with access to prior versions of the CFR;
  • Using KeyCite to quickly link to proposed rules in the Federal Register.

If you have a more in-depth question on the Federal Register or any other Westlaw topic, Sarah will be available for an hour after the presentation for those who attend in person.
