Class Description

When Congress moved from Philadelphia to Washington, D. C. in 1800, it placed its entire collection of books into just one room of the unfinished Capitol.  Today, the several buildings of the Library of Congress collectively contain the largest and most wide-ranging repository of human expression on Earth.  One of its buildings is the most beautifully ornate public structure in the United States, and another is the world's single largest library building.  In this class, we will look at the Library's history, buildings, collections, and services.  We will also see how you can access the Library's vast resources, either in person or online.
