American Memory from the Library of Congress

What is this amazing undertaking (you may well ask)?

American Memory is a multimedia web site of digitized historical documents, photographs, sound recordings, moving pictures, books, pamphlets, maps, and other resources from the Library of Congress’s vast holdings. An historic initiative in its own right, American Memory currently makes available more than 100 collections and more than 9 million individual items to users in the U.S. and throughout the world.

Miss Bun thinks that is rather a stunning accomplishment! Here is a link to their FAQ (frequently asked questions) page for more info: American Memory FAQ

Some collections may involve a bit of clicking to get where you want to go so be patient. Good things come to those who wait (or so Miss Bun says).
