|| About the Wise Guide ||
History’s mysteries, hidden treasures, fascinating facts, scintillating stories … the Library of Congress has a little bit of everything. We uncover the best each month on the Wise Guide to loc.gov—your entry into one of the world's most extensive websites that is sponsored by the world's largest library. And, it’s all free and available to people around the world.
The Library’s holdings range from prints, photographs, films, audio recordings, maps, manuscripts, music and digital materials to (of course) books. We are also a place that sponsors concerts, lectures, dance performances, film screenings and poetry readings. All this and more will be featured on the site. So, take a look, play around and be inspired by the wonderful world of the Wise Guide.
