Romantic Circles selected as "Historic Collection" by Library of Congress

The United States Library of Congress has selected Romantic Circles (www.rc.umd.edu) for inclusion in its historic collections of Internet materials. The Library's traditional functions, acquiring, cataloging, preserving and serving collection materials of historical importance to the Congress and to the American people to foster education and scholarship, extend to digital materials, including Web sites.  Over time, the Web archiving team will make Romantic Circles available to researchers both onsite at Library facilities and though the Library's public Web site  http://www.loc.gov/webarchiving/.
