The Prints and Photographs Reading Room has recently announced this new online finding aid:

Famous People: Selected Portraits From the Collections of the Library of Congress

Many of the selections in this finding aid are also in American Memory, for example the Presidents and First Ladies, but many are not.

The path from the LC Home Page:
Select "Collections and Services."
Select "For Researchers."
Select "Prints and Photographs" from the Reading Room list.
A link to the feature is on the right.
