Planning a research trip to Archives II in College Park, MD? The temporary closure of the Textual Research Room from December 28, 2016 - January 4, 2017 may affect you!


If you haven’t been checking our Facebook page or the main page (and why aren’t you?), there are some changes coming to Archives II in College Park, MD, this winter!

From December 28, 2016 through January 4, 2017, Archives II will continue its re-cabling project, this time in the main Textual Research Room on the second floor of the College Park, MD facility (Room 2000). Due to construction hazards, that room will need to be closed for the duration of the project (and possibly for slightly longer than scheduled), BUT we will be providing researchers with alternative Textual Research spaces while the main Research Room is closed. These will be on a limited basis, owing to size and space restraints.

This closure will ONLY affect the main Textual Research Room at Archives II. This closure will not affect the Special Media Research Rooms at Archives II, or any of the Research Rooms at Archives I in Washington, D.C.

We ask for your patience and understanding while we work to upgrade our services. Watch this space for more information!

If you have questions or concerns about this closure, please contact Michael Knight at 301-837-0475 or
