Dr. Carla Hayden will discuss the importance of the Library of Congress in the 21st century, especially in the digital age. The Library houses more than 162 million items that include historical documents and artifacts, photographs, books, manuscripts, sheet music, and so much more. Her monumental goal is to share all these items online with the public from coast to coast.
