In the event of a Government shutdown, the Library of Congress will be temporarily closed beginning Tuesday, October 1, until further notice. During this period, the Library will be unable to respond to any communications received. Classification Web and Cataloger's Desktop will continue to be available, but should any technical difficulties arise during the closure no customer service or technical support can be provided.  We anticipate the MARC Distribution Services (MDS) will have files available for the short term but contain fewer records than normal. We will be unable to process orders for print products. We apologize for the inconvenience.
