The Missouri State Library Reference Services Division is YOUR library—the library for state employees.  If you don’t know much about us, or if you want a refresher on the many resources and services we provide for state employees, this class is for you!  We will cover how to access our digital collections of ebooks, research articles, magazine and newspaper pieces, business profiles, legislative research tools, and much more!

State Capital Universe, a LexisNexis database, is introduced in this class. This database allows keyword searching of bills, statutes, and regulations from all U.S. states in one convenient environment. Included in this class are explanations of search features and instructions on how to pull needed information from this database.
