About Library of Congress

Publisher's Description

Library of Congress is an online version of the real thing -- the world's largest library and all the resources housed therein. There's no log-in or way to save information; it's just a place to visit and find information in all formats, including text, audio, and video. The home page features a rotating group of Collection Highlights under subjects like American Memory, Prints and Photographs, Maps, Historic Newspapers, and more. Click on any of these, and you'll be taken to the full list of content by subject. For the most kid-friendly stuff, click Kids and Families; you'll find links to subsites like Everyday Mysteries, a place full of fun science facts, or Today in History.
