Research Tools: Library of Congress Posts LibGuide For Finding Native American Visual Resources

From the LC “Picture This” Blog:

The Library of Congress recently launched the first batch of guides in a new format, utilizing the LibGuides platform, which we hope will make learning about the collections a bit easier.



The Prints & Photographs Division’s first guide published in the new format aims to help researchers who wish to find images related to American history and culture, a strength of the Division’s holdings.

In addition to viewing the overview text on the right side of the introductory page, visitors to the website can select topics on the left-hand navigation bar – Selected Collections, Searching for Images, Major Reference Works and Related Resources – to explore further. Be sure to browse through the images in the Featured Content gallery at the bottom of the Introduction page to see examples of the kinds of images you might find in the collections.
