....the song with this name is the official musical announcement that the President has arrived, and as of next Tuesday afternoon it will be played for a new one. Barack Obama will be sworn in as 44th President in a ceremony set to begin at 10:30 a.m. our time. For complete, official, information about the ceremony and the many accompanying events, you can look at the Presidential Inauguration Committee's website.
Some information, including a general schedule of events and a biography of Mr. Obama, can also be found in the Library's inauguration display, shown at the right. The display is located on the first row of the government documents collection on the main floor. Other items in the display include a look at past inaugurations (and a volume of inaugural addresses), a selection of presidential documents from the '60's to the present, and a large format booklet with photos and diagrams of the White House gardens.
