Digital Reference Section, Library of Congress, Offers Monthly Orientation to Web Site
The Library of Congress is the nation’s oldest federal cultural institution and the largest library in the world, with 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.
The Digital Reference Section (DRS) conducts a free one-hour orientation, monthly on the second Wednesday at 11 a.m. – noon, Eastern Time, via Web conference. Throughout the program, DRS staff provide opportunities to ask questions, learn strategies for online access of the materials, and sample the collections and resources provided to facilitate your research.
The next session will be Wednesday, August 12, 11:00 am -12:00 pm, EDT. To learn more and register for the Orientation, visit http://www.loc.gov/rr/program/orientation.html.
