Prints & Photographs Online Catalog
The Prints & Photographs Online Catalog (PPOC) provides access through group or item records to about 75% of the Division's holdings, as well as to some images found in other units of the Library of Congress. Many of the catalog records are accompanied by digital images--about 1.2 million digital images in all. Paper finding aids, card catalogs, and browsing files of
pictures available on site cover many of the remaining collections
all images displayed in this catalog are
in the public
domain. The Library offers
broad public access to these materials
as a contribution
to education and scholarship. It is the researcher's obligation to determine and satisfy copyright or other use restrictions when publishing or otherwise distributing materials found in the Library's collections. In some collections, only thumbnail images display to those searching outside the Library of Congress because of potential rights considerations. See the Library's Legal
Notices for more information.
