Exploring the Early Americas at The Library of Congress

"A new exhibition opening December 13 marks the beginning of a months-long transformation of public spaces in the Library of Congress's Thomas Jefferson Building into an experience for visitors that merges cutting-edge technology with the knowledge and inspiration embodied in the Library's unparalleled collections and curators. 'Exploring the Early Americas,' which features items from the Jay I. Kislak Collection and Martin Waldseemüller's 1507 World Map - the first document of any kind to use the word 'America' - focuses on the history and legacies of the Americas and the impact of European contact, culture and conquest."
