The tercentenary year of Benjamin Franklin's birth has sparked
a renewed interest in his life and his legacy, which in turn
have inspired publications, celebrations, seminars, concerts,
and exhibitions. With its sizeable collections of original
Franklin materials in manuscript and printed form, the Library
of Congress has contributed an exhibit and accompanying Web
Franklin: In His Own Words.
This resource guide assists in locating Franklin resources
available on the Library of Congress's Web site. In addition,
it provides links to external Web sites focusing on Franklin
and a bibliography containing selections for both general
and younger readers.
