The lecture and exercises were prepared for an Administrative Law Class.   Statutes are covered because the students needed to know about enabling statutes, and statutes requiring changes in regulation.  I covered legislative history (very briefly), and how the annotated U.S. Code often has citing references to regulations.  I also covered the usual CFR, Federal Register, agency decisions, & agency guidance.  I used both Internet sources (although I was unaware of Congress.gov when I made the presentation last semester), WestlawNext and classic Lexis (Lexis Advance did not have a lot of the legislative history stuff, and still doesn't as I write this). The students really enjoyed doing the exercises and found them useful.
