America’s Library Website adds interactive features

  • Many new interactive features have recently been added to the highly successful America’s Library Website for kids and families at http://www.americaslibrary.gov.

America’s Library was designed specifically for kids and families to provide a fun and educational experience. The site draws on the incomparable American historical collections of the Library of Congress, and it has handled more than 100 million transactions since its debut in April 2000.

Each of the five sections of the Web site has new features: Meet Amazing Americans, Jump Back in Time, Explore the States, Join America at Play and See, Hear and Sing.


September 11 Web Archive announced

  • The Library of Congress, in collaboration with the Internet Archive, webArchivist.org and the Pew Internet & American Life Project, have released a collection of digital materials called the September 11 Web Archive, available at September11.archive.org.

The Archive preserves the Web expressions of individuals, groups, the press and institutions in the United States and from around the world in the aftermath of the attacks in the United States on Sept. 11, 2001.

The Archive contributes to the historical record, capturing information that could otherwise be lost.


LIVE! @ your library provides grants to libraries

  • LIVE! @ your library, an initiative of the American Library Association (ALA), has been providing grants for libraries nationwide, to explore cultural issues through live appearances by authors, artists and musicians.

Additional information can be found at http://www.ala.org/publicprograms. Upcoming application deadlines are January 15, 2002 and March 15, 2002.
