Reader review(s):

American Library, June 7, 2001
The Library of Congress was set up for Congress, which is probably why its law library reading room has legal materials in all languages and covering all ancient and modern legal systems. But it is also there for government agencies, other libraries, scholars and us: just look at the LOC website, which is probably unbeatable in digitized, free-of-charge reference and research offerings. But what else could be expected from the world's greatest multimedia encyclopedia? Even before the digital decade, bound volumes were only a small part of all its holdings, what with almost every phonograph record made in the U.S., the largest collection of motion pictures in America, and the world institutional record in charts and globes, Civil War photographs, handwritten copies of the Gettysburg Address, maps, and Stradivari violins. Already web accessible are American Memory documents, photographs and sound recordings; American Treasures, such as some of what President Thomas Jefferson had in his personal library; the federal legislative database; and the LIBRARY OF CONGRESS ONLINE catalog, making much of its over 110 million physical items web searchable. Readers should have smooth visiting online and off. Robert S. Want's snugly thorough book shows just one of the ways of applying Ian Forsyth's TEACHING AND LEARNING MATERIALS AND THE INTERNET, David Leu's TEACHING WITH THE INTERNET, Colin McCormack's BUILDING A WEB-BASED EDUCATION SYSTEM, and Edward J. Valauskas' THE INTERNET INITIATIVE
