The Library of Congress.
Goodrum, Charles A.
From its earliest beginnings to the post war information explosion, this text traces the history of the world's largest library, the Library of Congress (LC). The library's creation in 1800 for use by members of Congress is comprehensively discussed along with its development into a world wide service. Library methodology is covered in chapters on collection, development, acquisition, cataloging, reference, and service to Congress. An appendix on careers in the Library of Congress, a list of past LC librarians, and a list for further reading is provided. (Author/DS)
