We know that the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. is the largest library in the world.

But, do you know that the Library of Congress has a sensational digital collection too?

That’s right.

The Library of Congress has an awesome digitized collection of text, photos, and audio-visuals that you can access from home.

It’s a treasure trove for researchers, students, teachers, journalists, documentarians, and the curious of all stripes.

And best of all, it’s free.

You can access  historic maps; newspapers; early sound recordings; webcasts; motion pictures; rare books; full text of bills, and even first-person stories of veterans.  That’s just the tip of the iceberg.

If you need assistance, ask a librarian for help online.

Library of Congress: “By providing these materials online, those who may never come to Washington can gain access to the treasures of the nation’s library. Such online access also helps preserve rare materials that may be too fragile to handle.”

Check out this valuable e-learning resource here.

It’s your turn.  What are some of your favorite online resources?
