The Library of Congress welcomes your use of its online
systems available on the Internet. Some of the Library's online
systems accept and answer Internet electronic mail about

Library will be forwarded to each corresponding unit for
assistance. If your request includes a *REFERENCE QUESTION*, the
reference aspect of your request will be addressed according to
- Library staff will examine each request to determine if
the information sought is unique to the Library of Congress.
Those requiring the attention or consultation of specialized
resources in the Library's collections will be forwarded to the
appropriate area for response. Appropriate requests will be
placed within the regular flow for answering requests in as
timely a manner as possible.
- Many requests the Library of Congress receives can be
answered by local public, college or university libraries. In
these cases, we encourage you to use local libraries first for
answers to your questions or advice about other sources that can
help you. REFERENCE QUESTIONS THAT CAN BE ANSWERED BY LOCAL
