President John Adams signed an Act of Congress in April 24, 1800, establishing the Library and moving the seat of government from Philadelphia to Washington, DC.


The library is open to the general public for academic research and tourists. Only those who are issued a Reader Identification Card may enter the reading rooms and access the collection. The Reader Identification Card is available in the Madison building to persons who are at least 16 years of age upon presentation of a government issued picture identification (e.g. driver's license, state ID card or passport).[18] However, only members of Congress, Supreme Court Justices, their staff, Library of Congress staff and certain other government officials can actually remove items from the library buildings. Members of the general public with Reader Identification Cards must use items from the library collection inside the reading rooms only; they cannot remove library items from the reading rooms or the library buildings.


I was probably not taught no thing about the Library of Congress because those who taught me may have not known or deemed it unuseful.


As far as defacto record keeping, I am still trying to understand what I read.
