Just the Facts, Ma'am [and Sir]...From the Virtual Reference Shelf

The Library of Congress is the largest library in the world, and its staff of "knowledge navigators" have assembled a Virtual Reference Shelf with Web links offering some of the most often requested information. From calculators to dictionaries and encyclopedias to statistics, you are likely to find what you are looking for here. But if you don't, go to Ask a Librarian, an online reference service from the Library of Congress in conjunction with a network of libraries and research institutions around the world.
