The Library of Congress is using social media technologies and websites to engage the public with Library news, events, acquisitions and exhibits. We’re also sharing selected historic content from our collections (where no copyright restrictions exist) in more places and more ways. Read our Comment and Posting Policy »




Offering historical photos through the Flickr photosharing service gives the Library an opportunity to share some of our most popular images through the "Commons" project for visual materials.
