Notice: As the Library of Congress gradually begins to reopen its Reading Rooms for research, we are putting safety first with new procedures and practices that protect everyone’s health. Online resources and reference services, such as Ask a Librarian, will continue to be available during this time. Starting June 1 confirmed appointments are required for entry into Library facilities, and everyone must follow the health and safety protocols established by the Library, in consultation with public health professionals. Most of these protocols are mandatory, regardless of vaccination status. For details on Reading Room openings, appointments and “Know Before you Go” checklist, see: loc.gov/about/pandemic-information/for-researchers
