For a listing of NARA microfilm and original records available on partner websites, please see Microfilm Publications and Original Records Digitized by our Digitization Partners.
- Four microfilm readers including one machine attached to a computer that enables a researcher to adjust the image on the screen (zoom, rotate, brightness, ect) and print from microfilm.
- More than 30,000 rolls of microfilm covering multiple topics and record groups. For more information about our microfilm holdings, please Contact Us.
The Public Access Research Room is staffed by volunteers at various times throughout the week. These volunteers are a great resource if you need a little more guidance with your genealogical or historical research. They are here to help you with whatever you may need.
If you would like to ensure that you visit at a time when a volunteer is working, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at (303) 604-4740.
