The Library of Congress is now accessible through the Internet.
Perhaps Brian Taves might give us a few pointers on searching
through LOCIS?
My understanding is that most film/TV records are >not< included
in LOCIS.  Is that right, Brian?

The Library of Congress Information System (LOCIS) is now available
over the Internet.  The telnet address is:
LOCIS accepts both telnet 3270 and line mode.
LOCIS includes over 15 million catalog records and over 10 million
records for other types of information: federal legislation, copyright
registrations, Braille and audio, organizations, and selected foreign
legal materials.
Searching hours are (all times USA eastern; closed national holidays):
Monday - Friday:   6:30am - 9:30pm
Saturday:          8:00am - 5:00pm
Sunday:            1:00pm - 5:00pm
Printed manuals will be available for sale later this summer and
very soon via FTP (ftp     /pub/LC.Online).  There will
be a LOCIS Quick Search Guide and a LOCIS Reference Manual.
