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.
