The websites of special libraries have a wide range of materials. In addition to information about the library and its resources, they often house special collections and provide access to unique works. Examine the Site Map found at the National Library of Medicine (Link to Site Map is at the bottom of the webpage) and the resources found at the Wirtz Labor Library.

Go to the Peace Palace Library and examine their website resources. They won the Law Library award. The Library of Congress website has been awarded a Webby.
