Listening Appointments

Appointments are required for listening to material in our collection. Recordings do not circulate.
Listeners can telephone the Reference Center at (202) 707-7833, fax your request to (202) 707-8464, or submit an email request through Be sure to include the name and title of the items requested, the call numbers, and personal contact information so we can confirm your appointment.

It will take at least two weeks for our engineers to digitize your recordings and have them available for your listening appointment. Special arrangements are required for requests of more than five items. Certain audio formats will require more time to digitize and will necessitate a longer wait. Please contact the Reference Center as soon as possible with large requests.
Patrons are able to use the Reference Center without appointment to access the catalogs, reference books, archival collections, microfiche, microfilm and other reference sources.
