Information for Researchers - Using the Library of Congress


Cameras may be carried on the grounds and within the buildings of the Library, but, generally, no pictures may be taken in the reading rooms. With the permission of the head of a reading room, hand-held cameras may be used for copying Library material when regular light sources are sufficient. Photographs for news, advertising, or commercial purposes may be taken only with the permission of the Library's Public Affairs Officer, who must also approve the use of tripod or flash in the exhibition areas.
