Introducing loc.gov: Orientation and Research Strategies (Free Webinar)

This is a free webinar from the Library of Congress (loc). 

The Library of Congress is the nation's oldest federal cultural institution and serves as the research arm of Congress. It is also the largest library in the world, with more than 164 million items—including books, recordings, photographs, maps, sheet music, manuscripts—in its collections. It collects in some 470 languages, with materials ranging from rare cuneiform tablets to born digital materials. Through its website, it provides access to resources, services, and over eleven million of its multimedia primary sources.

How can you access this wealth of information? What resources and services can assist you? This program provides an overview of the Library of Congress’s website, which serves as the portal to several million digital and digitized multimedia collection items—along with records for millions of additional physical holdings. As an introduction to the Library of Congress’s diverse online resources, the webinar highlights featured collection content as well as navigation and research strategies.
