National Archives – Pic of the Week

Share this post:

The National Archives is just a short walk down Capitol Hill and across the National Mall from the Library of Congress.  Currently, if you live in Washington, D.C. or are visiting, there is a very interesting exhibit titled Amending America.

Each time I visit the National Archives I learn more about the great institution and new projects they are working on.  The Innovation Hub, for example, provides a space for the public to scan and transcribe documents.  Since my work here at the Library of Congress involves legislative materials, I enjoy browsing the records of the Center for Legislative Archives.  If you are new to researching their collection, they have a helpful Getting Started With Your Research page.

If you happen to be a Member of Congress (thank you for reading In Custodia Legis), they have a page with services specifically for you.
