The Veterans History Project collects first-hand
accounts of men and women who served in the United States
Armed Forces, beginning in World War I and continuing through
the current conflicts. Of our 60,000 collections of oral
history interviews, letters, diaries, memoirs, photographs,
and original art work, over 5,000 are fully digitized.
The materials in these collections may be fully accessed
from our website, http://www.loc.gov/vets/.
Basic information on all other collections is also available
at our web site. In-person visiting researchers are served
in the Reading Room of the American Folklife Center http://www.loc.gov/folklife/.
