The Wise Guide


This Wise Guide portal was designed to introduce you to the many fascinating, educational and useful resources available from the nation's library and one of the most popular Web sites of the federal government. The federal government and the Library of Congress, in particular, maintain and develop hundreds of Web sites. For the user, navigating this online labyrinth can be rather daunting. Thankfully, the Library of Congress has partnered with the Ad Council to create the "Wise Guide," which is refreshed monthly (much like a magazine or periodical), and offers links to "the best of the Library's online materials." Currently, the site has eight archived issues of the Wise Guide and the most current edition as well. In the most recent edition (June 2003), visitors can follow links to materials dealing with Father's Day, John Philip Sousa (and the recent reconstruction of his "Library of Congress March"), and an amusing collection of dance instruction manuals from 1490 to 1920. This helpful online compendium will be a great boon to those looking to keep up to date about some of the most useful online materials available from a number of federal government sponsored sites.
