In December 2000, Congress appropriated $100 million for a national digitalstrategy effort, to be led by the Library of Congress.

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.
The inaugural meeting of the Section 108 Study Group was held at the Library on April 14-15.

O f the more than 130 million items in the Library of Congress, which are considered "treasures"? 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.

What Is a Call Number?
In libraries the world over, call numbers serve more than one purpose:
A unique identification number
Each book (or other item) has its own unique call number which is taped to the lower outside edge of the book's spine. The call number is also written or taped inside the book, usually on the reverse side (verso) of the title page.
A miniature subject formula
Books written about the same subject have similar call numbers, which groups them together on the shelf, making it easier for you to browse the library's holdings on a specific topic.
A location code
A book's call number also appears in the catalog entry in CONSULS, the computer catalog which lists the holdings of all four CSU libraries and the Connecticut State Library. Once you have located the entry for a specific book in CONSULS, make a note of its WCSU call number and then look for the book in call number order on the library shelves (also called the "stacks").
