This website contains the on-line versions of books previously published in hard copy by the Federal Research Division of the Library of Congress under the Country Studies/Area Handbook Program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Army. Because the original intent of the Series' sponsor was to focus primarily on lesser known areas of the world or regions in which U.S. forces might be deployed, the series is not all-inclusive. At present, 102 countries and regions are covered. Notable omissions include Canada, the United States, France, the United Kingdom, and other Western nations, as well as a number of African nations.

Information is being produced in greater quantities and with greater frequency than at any time in history. Electronic media, especially the Internet, make it possible for almost anyone to become a "publisher." How will society preserve this information and make it available to future generations? How will libraries and other repositories classify this information so that their patrons can find it with the same ease that they can locate a book on a shelf?
These questions and others are being addressed by a program led by the Library of Congress and including a host of other participants from the public and private sectors. The National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program, or Digital Preservation Program for short, has been generously funded by the U.S. Congress and will seek gifts and in-kind donations to achieve its mission
The ease with which electronic information can be created and "published" makes much of what is available today, gone tomorrow. Thus there is an urgent need to preserve this information before it is forever lost. New Section in Digital Preservation Web Site

Call numbers appear Note that the same call number can be written from top-to-bottom, or left-to-right.

Of course Thomas Jefferson's handwritten draft of the Declaration of Independence is a treasure, not only because of its association with Jefferson but also because of what it reveals about how one of the founding documents of America was written and rewritten and finally agreed upon by dozens of men in the midst of a political crisis. B T homas Jefferson, whose personal library became the core of the Library of Congress, arranged his books into three types of knowledge, corresponding to Francis Bacon's three faculties of the mind: Memory (History), Reason (Philosophy), and Imagination (Fine Arts).

Understanding Call Numbers
To be able to efficiently read Library of Congress (LC) call numbers is quite a skill. This tutorial was created to help library users uncover the mysteries of call number reading. Let's start with a sample call number:
Call numbers can begin with one, two, or three letters.
  • The first letter of a call number represents one of the 21 major divisions of the LC System. In the example, the subject "Q" is Science.
  • The second letter "E" represents a subdivision of the sciences, Geology. All books in the QE's are primarily about Geology.
    • Books in categories E, United States History, and F, Local U.S. History and American History, do not have a second letter (exception: in Canada, FC is used for Canadian history).
    • Books about Law, K's, can have three letters, such as KFH, Law of Hawaii. Some areas of history (D) also have three-letter call numbers.

The Library of Congress Congress Approves Nineteenth Amendment
Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt

After the 36th State Ratified,
Prints and Photograph Division

On June 4 , 1919, Congress, by joint resolution, approved the woman's suffrage amendment and sent it to the states for ratification. Earlier, the House had voted 304-89 and the Senate 56-25 in favor of the amendment. Disagreement on whether the best strategy was to pursue enfranchisement through a federal amendment or by individual state campaigns had divided the women's suffrage movement in 1869. Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony worked for a federal amendment under the banner of the National Woman Suffrage Association, while Lucy Stone led the American Woman Suffrage Association's state-by-state battle for the vote. In 1890, the two groups united to form the National American Woman Suffrage Association . NAWSA combined both techniques to secure voting rights for all American women. A series of well-orchestrated state campaigns took place under the dynamic direction of Carrie Chapman Catt , while the new National Woman's Party, led by Alice Paul , used more militant tactics to obtain a federal amendment.
