To acquaint readers with the genealogical resources of the Library of Congress, the staff of the Local History and Genealogy Reading Room conduct group tours or orientations. Requests for such tours must be made well in advance so that a staff member can be assigned to provide the orientation or tour or can be available to answer questions if a formal tour is not necessary. If possible, the group's leader should conduct a preliminary session on the Library's services and collections before the group arrives. Upon request, the Library will furnish materials for use in such a session. It is particularly important for the group to know that the bookstacks are closed to the public and that no genealogy or local history books may be borrowed unless they are on microfilm and the Library holds a master negative. Anyone who wishes to arrange a tour or who has questions about the Library's services to genealogists should call the Local History and Genealogy Reading Room at 202-707-5537. Orientation classes, taught by reference librarians, are offered regularly. The "Resources for Genealogical Research at the Library of Congress" course is designed as a basic introduction for genealogical researchers using the Library of Congress collections. Each session includes an introduction to genealogical research: what it is and what it involves; the resources and facilities of the Local History and Genealogy Reading Room: compiled family histories, local histories, city directories, telephone books, the reference collection, how to search the Library's online catalog, and an overview of automated resources on the Internet. How to locate published census schedules and indexes, ship passenger lists, military service and pension records, military lists and registers, cemetery records, church records and registers, court records, land records, and registers of births will be included. A tour of the LH&G Reading Room will conclude the class. The orientation classes are offered by the Local History and Genealogy Reading Room reference staff on the following Wednesday mornings: 2011 January 26 February 9 and 23 March 9 and 23 April 6 and 27 May 11 and 25 June 8 and 22 July 6 and 20 August 10 and 24 September 7 and 21 October 5 and 19 November 2 and 16 December 7 and 21 Sessions run from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. Please note that as of May 11, 2011, sessions will run from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Research orientation sessions will commence in the Local History & Genealogy Reading Room, LJ G42 of the Thomas Jefferson Building. For additional information, or to register for a class, call the Local History and Genealogy Reading Room at (202) 707-5537 Monday-Saturday between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. You can also register via an online registration form. Please come to the Library by 9:30 a.m. to apply for a Reader Registration Card (picture identification required). The Reader Registration Station is located in Room LM 140 on the first floor of the Madison Building, near the Independence Avenue entrance. The Madison Building can also be entered on the ground floor through the C Street SE entrance. The Humanities and Social Sciences Division periodically offers a 90-minute research orientation for first-time users. This course is a general introduction to the Library of Congress collections and resources. More information and a schedule of research orientations is available in the Library of Congress publication Information for Researchers.
