Library of Congress

 

 

There are so many things here it'll boggle your mind.... spend some time just exploring!

 

"The Library's mission is to support the Congress in fulfilling its constitutional duties and to further the progress of knowledge and creativity for the benefit of the American people."

 

The library of Congress houses millions of photos, books, films and other artifacts. Not all are digitized and available online but they have fabulous collections that are 

interesting and useful for class projects.
