Accessibility at the Library of Congress

The Library of Congress is committed to being a leader and a role model of accessibility. We strive to make every visitor feel comfortable by ensuring your visit is as easy as possible and free of barriers. Here at the Library, we recognize and appreciate the diversity of the general public. For this reason, we offer several programs and multiple options of ways to access our incredible collections.

National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled

The updated and expanded website of the National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled (NLS) helps the organization fulfill its mission of providing free braille and talking book library service for people with temporary or permanent low vision, blindness, or a physical disability that prevents reading or holding the printed page.

Interpreting Services Program

The Interpreting Services Program (ISP) is housed within the Office of Equal Employment Opportunity and Diversity Programs (EEODP). The ISP provides support operations that enable the Library to fulfill its mission of inclusion. The ISP helps managers, supervisors and employees with reasonable accommodations to work with their Deaf/hard of hearing employees while providing them advice and guidance on diversity management. In addition, the ISP coordinates captioning services for live/broadcasted events, and ensures major film screenings will be captioned for universal access.
