"For the studious types" Library Of Congress Tip by mattreider
Library Of Congress, Washington D.C.: 50 reviews and 104 photos
As an undergraduate at the nearby University of Maryland, I travelled to the Library of Congress (referred to by cool people as the LoC) ONCE. They have the biggest, most expensive computer desks known to man, with dental trim and raised capitals stained deep brown; all to hold the computers for the electronic card catalog lookup.
Print out what books you want, sign up for a table, and they'll bring the books to you. Remember, every book ever published in the US is available here.
There are also tours of the interior of the building, envisioned by Jefferson as a library where the congress could investigate what laws to pass.
Address: 10 First Street, SE
Directions: Metro: Capitol South. Next to the Supreme Court, just behind the Capitol Building.
