It was at one time; not sure about now, post-terrorism panic. When I went to Washington in 1994 however it was closed for renovation and they weren't offering public tours of that section. The LoC in general has only a few areas generally accessible to the public; other areas are accessible only as part of a guided tour (or used to be). You look stuff up in the catalog and ask a librarian to retrieve a book for you and bring it to the reading room. Only a few thousand reference books are shelved in the public areas, IIRC. -- Jim Henry
