The Library of Congress, the nation's oldest federal cultural institution and largest library in the world, contains more than 134 million books, recordings, photographs and prints, maps, music items, and manuscripts. Collected in more than 470 languages, the materials range from rare cuneiform tablets to born digital materials. Through its Web site (www.loc.gov), the Library makes available its resources, services, and more than fifteen million of its items in American history and culture.
Learn to access this wealth of information through the Digital Reference Section's free, one-hour orientation via webinar.
