Hours and usage restrictions
The Nixon Library and Museum is part of the presidential libraries system administered by the National Archives and Records Administration, a federal agency.
Until 2010, some textual materials remain at Archives II in College Park, Maryland. To determine where specific materials are located (Yorba Linda vs. College Park), visit the Nixon Library website. When you search under "Textual Materials," the website specifies location of each set of files.
For materials at College Park, finding aids with box numbers are in the Civilian Records side of the Research Assistance Room in the second-floor research room. Use the finding aids to determine which boxes you will need (there may be discrepancies between the box contents listed on the Nixon Library website versus what is listed in the finding aids at College Park).
Submit Nixon Library material requests to the CIRCULATION DESK at Archives II (usually, researchers submit requests to staff in the Research Assistance Room, but Nixon Library requests go directly to staff at the Circulation Desk instead). Nixon materials are pulled at the same times as all other materials.
Requests for Nixon Library materials at College Park are far more simple to fill out than typical requests. For example, materials from the White House Central Files would simply need your name, researcher number, date, and this information in the large field:
Nixon Presidential Library White House Central Files - Subject Files FG13, Box 1
(where "FG13" equals whatever subject file code you need, and insert the proper box number for that specific code).
