Event description

Description

Research orientation classes, taught by reference librarians and dealing with many aspects of using the Library and the collections will now be taught on Saturdays. The Saturday orientations are themed and focus on providing researchers an opportunity to learn more about the Library, its collections, expertise, services, and programs. Each month at least one "Research Orientation to the Library of Congress" course is taught. On other Saturdays, reference librarians from the Library's special collections and area studies reading rooms will provide an orientation to using those materials according to the following schedule. Please note that the maximum class size is 25 researchers.

After the introductory presentation, the group will be escorted to the Science Reading Room in the John Adams Building and will be given a tour of the reading room and the Technical Reports and Standards Section (TRS). TRS holds historical materials from WWII as well as standards and technical reports from various parts of the world

Individuals requiring accommodations for any of these events are requested to submit a request at least five business days in advance by contacting (202) 707-6362 or ADA@loc.gov.

Patrons are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes prior to the orientation. Seating is available on a first-come basis. Registration does not guarantee entry after the orientation start time.
