Library Of Congress
What is the Library of Congress?
The Library of Congress (LC) is the research library that serves the US Congress and is the de facto national library of the United States.
It’s America’s oldest federal cultural institution in the country and is housed in three buildings on Capitol Hill in Washington DC.
The library’s functions are overseen by the Librarian of Congress and the buildings are maintained by the Architect of the Capitol.
It is the world’s second-largest library and its “collections are universal, not limited by subject, format, or national boundary, and include research materials from all parts of the world and in more than 470 languages.”
