Election 2008 Workshop Oct. 6 @ 12 PM

Using Library Databases to Track the Process

Are you an informed citizen/voter? Do you want to check the accuracy of candidates’ statements? This workshop will focus on using the library’s subscription databases, not available to the general public, to find helpful information for selecting the next leaders of our country. In this workshop you will learn how to:
· Check congressional voting records
· Find out what various ethnic groups think about the candidates.
· Read party platforms
· Read before and after analyses of the election.
· Find more statistics than you ever wanted to know about Congress, the Electoral College, the Presidency and the Judiciary.
· Create customizable e-mail alerts about politics.
