Many thanks,

Digital Reference Section, Library of Congress, Offers Monthly
Orientation to Web Site

The Library of Congress is the nation's oldest federal cultural
institution and the largest library in the world, with more than 134
million books, recordings, photographs and prints, maps, music items,
and manuscripts.  Collected in more than 470 languages, the materials
range from rare cuneiform tablets to born digital materials.  Through
its Web site (www.loc.gov), the Library makes available its resources,
services, and more than eleven million of its items in American history
and culture.

How can you access the wealth of information available on the
Library’s Web site?  What resources and services can assist you? 
The Digital Reference Section (DRS) conducts a free, one-hour
orientation monthly, on the second Wednesday at 11 a.m. - noon, Eastern
time, via Web conference.  Throughout the program, DRS staff provide
opportunities to ask questions, learn strategies for online access of
the materials, and sample the collections and resources provided to
facilitate your research.

The next session will be January 14, 11 a.m. - noon, Eastern time.  To
register for the Orientation, use the Participant Registration Form,
available from  http://www.loc.gov/rr/program/orientation_form.php. 
Confirmation, log on instructions, and the handout will be sent via
email.  Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.  For more
information or to request the Orientation for a group, contact the
