| Compiled by Peter Armenti, Digital Reference Specialist
The Library's Digital Reference Section is in the process of creating Web guides to online resources for each U.S. Poet Laureate (1986-present) and Consultant in Poetry (1937-1985) to the Library of Congress. Each guide will link to Library of Congress Web pages that include information on the poet laureate's life and work, as well as to external websites that feature biographical information, interviews, poems, audio, video, and other materials that highlight the activities of each poet. Guides currently available are linked below; new guides will be added upon completion.
For information about the positions of Consultant in Poetry and Poet Laureate, see the frequently asked questions Web page.
