The National Archives at College Park (Archives II) will undergo temporary closures in the Researcher Registration Room 1000 and part of the ground floor security entrance to the research complex between December 8, 2017 and January 22, 2018.


Research Registration Room 1000

Room 1000 will be temporarily closed during a re-cabling improvement project. Due to the nature of the work, the project may be extended beyond January 22. The temporary location for researcher orientation and researcher cards will be conducted at a desk in the main ground floor lobby.


If you have an existing researcher card that has an expiration date between December 9, 2017 and the end of January 2018, it is recommended that you renew your card before December 9th.


Security Entrance to Research Complex

The ground floor security entrance to the research complex will have a temporary and only partial closure. Researchers will have full access to the research rooms but please anticipate longer wait times to enter and exit the research complex. The work will be done at the same time as Room 1000.


We will post updates and have status information on the main phone line (301-837-2000) for Archives II. We appreciate your patience.
