The Library of Congress, 1978. A Brief Summary of the Major Activities for the Fiscal Year Ending September 30, 1978.
Library of Congress, Washington, DC.
Major activities of the Library of Congress (LC) for 1978, given more detailed attention in the complete annual report, are summarized here under three broad headings: services to the Congress, to other libraries, and to the public. Services of the Library's Congressional Research Service (CRS) which are briefly described include reference and research efforts, seminars and workshops, and computerized information retrieval. Also mentioned are areas of cooperation with libraries here and abroad--those new and those strengthening existing arrangements--in acquisition, cataloging, networking, and preservation; the public part of the Library's services is covered in short sections on reference and research, copyright, the American Folklife Center, public programs and exhibits, and publications. The report concludes with a progress update on the James Madison Memorial Building and other building-related news. (JD)
