In this fascinating look at the more than two-century-old institution--the largest library in the world--MODERN MARVELS takes a rare, behind-the-scenes tour of the Library's vast collections. Here, upwards of 745 miles of shelves hold close to 145 million items, many of them invaluable treasures--from George Washington's hand-written diaries and personal copy of the Constitution to historic drafts of the Declaration of Independence to Galileo's first images of the moon. See how a staff of approximately 4,000 people catalog, protect, and preserve these prized possessions and how modern technology has enabled them to distribute these items globally.
