Although an appointment is not required, researchers are urged to contact the library in advance of any visit to allow the library staff ample time to locate and pull records related to their topics.

The archivist will explain research room regulations and services. Once the orientation is complete, a research card valid for 1 year will be issued. Lockers are available in the lounge for the storage of coats, briefcases, backpacks, and other personal items.

All writing materials will be provided by the research room attendant. Each desk is equipped with a power outlet. Laptop computers are allowed, but optical scanners are not permitted. Researchers may bring a small amount of notes into the research room. These notes must be examined by the research room attendant and stamped “Approved by Clinton Library” before research may begin. On-site researchers may make photocopies using the self-service copier available in the research room for a fee of $.20 per page.
