New Library of Congress Magazine Makes its Debut

September 28, 2012 – This month, the Library of Congress debuted the new Library of Congress Magazine (LCM).  The bi-monthly, general-interest magazine will feature content about both current and historical events.  LCM is the next-generation publication of a Library magazine that began circulation as a mimeographed staff newsletter during World War II. The transformed magazine, which will publish six issues per year, has been re-imagined to better serve contemporary audiences with information about upcoming programs and more general-interest features to inspire research and learning.

"Like our online offerings and exhibitions, the new magazine pulls the Library’s amazing collections off the shelves and out of the archive boxes, bringing information, images and history together in an entertaining and informative package," said Gayle Osterberg, the Library’s director of communications and executive editor, in a press release. "LCM will be an important channel for communicating the full breadth and scope of the Library’s mission, its expert staff, its collections and its myriad services to Congress and to the nation."

The magazine’s circulation of 12,000 includes Members of Congress, libraries, and other educational institutions throughout the world. The publication is also accessible for free online at

Additional information is available on the Library of Congress website.
