How do I get a personal copy of a book I found in your collection?

Many of the items listed in the Library of Congress catalog are available in other libraries. You can ask your local library to request copies of books for you through interlibrary loan service. Your library may be able to borrow a copy of a book from the Library of Congress collection on your behalf if it is not available at any other libraries.

To find out which libraries have copies of a book you would like to read see: WorldCat External — Worldcat is a database that provides information on the collections of thousands of libraries all over the world.

If you would like to purchase a copy of materials in the Library's collections, please contact the Library's Duplication Services for more information.
