Visit Arches and discover a landscape of contrasting colors, landforms and textures unlike any other in the world. The park has over 2,000 natural stone arches, in addition to hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins and giant balanced rocks. This red rock wonderland will amaze you with its formations, refresh you with its trails, and inspire you with its sunsets.
A rugged, whitewater river flowing northward through deep canyons, the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent. New River Gorge National River in West Virginia encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the New River, is rich in cultural and natural history, and offers an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities.
Denali is six million acres of wild land, bisected by one ribbon of road. Travelers along it see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest give way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North America's tallest peak, 20,310' Denali. Wild animals large and small roam un-fenced lands, living as they have for ages. Solitude, tranquility and wilderness await.

WestlawNext: Introduction and New Features Wednesday, December 9, 2015, 10:00 am - 11:15 am
Thomson Reuters WestlawNext online legal research service permits users to search for legal, legislative, news, and business content without first selecting a database, allowing one to click checkboxes to select the jurisdiction and nature of material wanted. Its search algorithm, referred to as WestSearch, is perhaps the world's most advanced legal research engine, executing a federated search across multiple content types. Users can enter descriptive terms or Boolean connectors and select a jurisdiction. WestlawNext also supports retrieving documents by citation, party name, or KeyCite reference. An overview page enables users to see the top results per content type, or to view all results for a particular content type. Filters can be applied to refine the result list even further. WestlawNext also provides folders for storing and sharing portions of the research selected by the user. Those attending this class will be shown how to maneuver through WestlawNext’s user-friendly platform and utilize its resources and features to retrieve, store and share the search results they need.
Please Note: This program will be held in the new temporary Library, located in Room 2262 of the Stewart L. Udall Department of the Interior Building. It is also being offered to remote users as a simultaneous online webinar.
