Presidential Libraries

Research Presidential Materials

Every day the President and his staff generate thousands of documents providing insight into the issues confronting our nation.

Presidential Libraries preserve not only these official records, but also the:

  • personal papers of Presidential family members, associates, and friends
  • dynamic audio and visual collections

Together, these archival materials provide a comprehensive view of our Presidents and our history.

  • When doing research at a Presidential Library:
    • Decide what content you are looking for.
    • Determine where the content is held.
    • Research the Finding Aids.
