Notice to NARA Researchers and FOIA Requesters
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of our staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgment as well as a substantive response to your reference or FOIA request or appeal. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
JFK Library archivists can assist researchers in a number of ways.
On-site researchers: Researchers planning to visit the Library can contact the archivists to make an appointment and get help identifying relevant collections.
Remote researchers: Archivists can answer questions about our holdings if we can address the question in a reasonable amount of time. We are not able to conduct extensive or interpretive research, appraise or authenticate materials from private collections, or evaluate researchers’ work.
We encourage all researchers to contact us at Kennedy.Library@nara.gov to ask about the services we offer, listed below.
