Title
The Main Reading Room of the Library of Congress
Summary
When most researchers arrive at the Library of Congress, their journey of discovery begins in the Main Reading Room. As the home to the library's reference collections, the computer catalog center, and knowledgeable reference staff, the Main Reading Room's purpose is to make library research easily accessible to anyone with enough curiousity to pursue it. This video includes general information about the library's staff and material resources, the reader ID process, and encourages researchers to experience all that the library has to offer. Speakers include 2012 Library of Congress Junior Fellow Kristen Schumacher and Library staffers Cheryl Adams, Kathy Woodrell, Steven Davenport, Abby Yochelson, Thomas Mann, Kristi Conkle and Judy Robinson.
