Contracting Officer, 202-707-8610.  The Library of Congress requires
the design, fabrication and installation of two self-contained,
environmentally controlled exhibition cases that will attractively
display, on a rotating basis, some of America's greatest document
and book treasures to the highest preservation and security
standards.  Environmental systems incorporated into the cases shall
allow temperature, relative humidity, pollutant and lighting
controls independent of the exhibition hall's ambient conditions.

cases will be used in a major, multi-year exhibition, "The Treasures
of the Library of Congress," which will open in April 1997.  The two
cases are to be aesthetically compatible with the basic design for
the Treasures exhibition, the other surrounding cases and the
