The Library of Congress Blog

People in government are providing increasing levels of public service via the ’Net, including blogs.

Every step matters.

Check out the Library of Congress blog, of particular interest to those who love the written word, including me:

First, we’re now highlighting the new World Digital Library partnership in our featured “marquee” at the top of the page. The WDL partnership among the Library, UNESCO and organizations and institutions around the world brings together on a single website rare and unique documents — books, journals, manuscripts, maps, prints and photographs, films, and sound recordings — that tell the story of the world’s cultures.

Second, and perhaps even more helpful from a user standpoint, we’ve launched a new set of reference pages that are designed to make it easier to find the Library’s diverse and extensive online collections. The “Browse by Topic” pages bring you to the best of our digital holdings, browsing by broad subject areas such as Government & Law, Arts & Culture, and Sports & Leisure.
