October is Computer Learning Month. The Libraries, like the rest of the world, does most of its work on computers. But it is also seeking to use computers and the internet in innovative ways to bring its collections to researchers and folks just curious about the Libraries and the Smithsonian.

Through its online catalog, Galaxy of Images, this blog, facebook and twitter, the Libraries connects thousands of people every day with its collections which range over twenty separate libraries and myriad subject matters, such as: Natural History, History of Science and Technology, Anthropology, Philately and Postal History, African and Asian Art, American Art and Portraiture, Aviation and Space Exploration, Botany and Horticulture, Decorative Arts and Design, Tropical Biology, Museology, and Native American and African American History and Culture. The Libraries' Special Collections include 40,000 rare books and large holdings in Worlds Fairs and International Expositions, Manufacturer's Trade Catalogs, and scientific manuscripts.

Connect with the Libraries and continue the learning process with us.
