What is Stacks?

Stacks is a restricted online portal to stacks.loc.gov that houses non-public domain digital collection items like newspapers and other periodicals. There is at least one designated workstation available in every reading room/research center that will allow you to search and access the materials - the content can be viewed and printed out, but not downloaded or saved. 

What digital content is available in Stacks? Stacks contains digital content from across the Library Collections and Services Group but primarily contains rights-restricted digital content from the Library’s general and international collections. Highlights available in Stacks include electronic books, journals, and newspapers received as a part of Cataloging-in-Publication, copyright deposit, and digitized titles from the Library’s print collections. Stacks also includes smaller amounts of rights-restricted audio recordings, films and videos, legal gazettes, manuscripts, music scores, and maps.
