The Main Card Catalog at the Library of Congress is located adjacent to the Main Reading Room. This rich resource contains author, subject and title cards for materials in the collections acquired prior to 1980. Because not all items in the collections are included in the online catalog, physically searching the Main Card Catalog may be necessary for researchers doing historical research, or for those who wish to consult books and resources published prior to 1980.
Several of the periodicals and journals included in this guide include extensive bibliographies about Charles Rennie Mackintosh, his artistic circle, his architectural and decorative works, and broad influences in Scotland and other European countries. Although hundreds of articles can be located using current online resources, contemporaneous works and journals should also be consulted. Because not all of these journals are indexed;, researchers an benefit from printed bibliographies, references, and other resources may be beneficial.

Therefore, a searchable database of dissertations and theses can be found under “Subscription Databases” section of this guide.
