It’d be easy to think of the Library of Congress as a stodgy old place full of dusty and antiquated resources.

That perception would be wrong.

The Library of Congress adds about 10,000 items to its collections every day, and has over 150 million resources overall. Among the resources?

  • Sheet Music
  • Maps
  • Lesson Plans
  • Manuscripts
  • Speeches
  • Essays
  • Recordings

If you can’t visit in person, give their website a look. The infographic below is a helpful visual guide to get you started.
