Collections of the Library of Congress, Selected Bibliography

The Government Documents department of many libraries contains a wealth of information on almost every topic. Of course you can find Census material, laws, environmental reports, and presidential papers, but the government also publishes information on arts, literature and culture. "The Library [of Congress] preserves a collection of nearly 121 million items, more than two-thirds of which are in media other than books. These include the largest map, film and television collections in the world (http://www.loc.gov/help/about.html)."

Listed here are just a few examples of publications we receive free through the Federal Depository Library Program. They were published by the Library of Congress to share the Library's collection with all of us. If you would like to look at any of these items, or need help finding anything in our Government Documents collection, we're happy to help!
