The Kluge Center encourages humanistic and social science research that makes use of the Library of Congress's large and varied collections. Interdisciplinary and cross-cultural research is particularly welcome in the Kluge Fellowship program.
Among the collections available to researchers are the world's largest law library and outstanding multi-lingual collections of books and periodicals. Deep special collections of manuscripts, maps, music, films, recorded sound, prints, and photographs are also available. In-residence scholars have access to the Library's specialized staff and to the intellectual community of Washington.
