LC CD-ROM: California As I Saw It: First-Person Narratives of California's Early Years, 1849–1900
In 1991, Milestones worked with the Library's American Memory program to create a CD-ROM collection of first-person narratives of life and travel in California between 1849 and 1900. The assignment included conducting research in the LC's general and rare book collections to identify candidate works, developing a bibliography in database format and recommending the final universe of 190 books to be scanned. The second phase of the project involved the design of an educational exhibit to introduce users to American Memory and to the Californiana collection.

LC Exhibit: "Women Come to the Front: Journalists, Photographers and Broadcasters During World War II"
Milestones has also worked on exhibits for the Library. Women Come to the Front: Journalists, Photographers, and Broadcasters During World War II was first mounted in September 1995 in the Madison Gallery at the Library of Congress, before beginning a three-year national tour. The show profiles eight female American WWII correspondents, including Therese Bonney, Esther Bubley, May Craig, Janet Flanner, Toni Frissell, Dorothea Lange, Clare Boothe Luce, and Mary Marvin Breckinridge Patterson. Milestones president Kathi Ann Brown co-curated the exhibit with LC photography specialist Dr. Beverly A. Brannan.
