The Orientation to Legal Research Series of classes is designed to give a basic introduction to legal sources and research techniques.  These orientations, taught by reference librarians, are typically offered once a month on a rotating basis, from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm, in webinar format.  This entry in the series provides an overview of U.S. federal regulations, including information about the notice and comment rulemaking process, the publication and citation of regulations, and the tracing of regulations from the Code of Federal Regulations, to the proposed rule in the Federal Register, to the regulation’s docket. For additional information, please contact us via our Ask a Librarian service.
