Open Access Graduate Research Paper
This paper will show the growth and expansion of the Library of Congress. Through the co-operation of Mr. Spofford and Congress, the Library is one of the finest in the world. In order to survive and grow, many obstacles had to be overcome. The two main ones were: The copyright law and the new classification system. However, more material had to be obtained as well as a new building constructed with a staff to distribute the materials. This paper will show that even though Mr. Spofford had many hardships he did not give up.
