Subject: To ADS Members--New Library of Congress Regulations

Steven J. Herman, Chief of the Collections Management Division of the Library

of Congress sent me a letter informing me that, beginning May 28, every user

of the Library of Congress reading rooms will be required to have a Reader

Registration Card, available at the Reader Registration Station in Room G22 of

the Thomas Jefferson Bldg. on Monday, Wed., and Thurs. from 8:30 am to 9:00 pm

and on Tues., Fri., and Sat. from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Mr. Herman assures us

that the process will take about 10 minutes only and will be instituted for

both enhancing the security of the collections and also making the system

easier to use. You will need photo identification.

Your loving president,

Larry Davis
