America's Library contains many images of documents, prints,
photographs, maps, recordings and other materials from the
past. These images represent letters, diaries, records and
tapes, films, sheet music, maps, prints, photographs and digital
materials. Much of what you see on America's Library will be
non-book items, and many of those materials are found only in
the collections of the Library of Congress. The site attempts to
accurately reference the credit for photographer, artist, author
or creator of the materials, as well as the collection from which
it is taken within the Library.
Credits for still images are found by clicking on the "Click
for enlargement and credits" icon.
Credits for other media are found by clicking on the "Credits"
link below the file type.
Our large and extensive Web site, which was launched on April 24, 2000 and has been updated frequently ever since, is produced by several different specialists working in many different divisions and service units inside the Library of Congress.
