Researcher Notice

A re-cabling project for the network systems in Archives II is under way. The project will provide Archives II with a more reliable network system. The work involves opening holes in the floor, working with miles of cabling, and dust and noise. The project will begin to affect research rooms in mid-September, with the first closures noted below. We regret any inconvenience and appreciate your support as we install a more reliable system.

Special Media Research Rooms in Archives II at College Park, Maryland will be temporarily closed on the following days for the re-cabling project:

  • Room 3050 (Cartographic): Work will run from September 15-20.
    The research room will be closed September 15-16.

  • Room 5050 (Still Pictures): Work will run from September 21-27.
    The research room will be closed September 21-22.

  • Room 6050 (Digital Partners): Work will run from September 28-October 4th.
    The research room will be closed September 28-29.

  • Online access to NARA holdings will still be available 24 hours a day via www.archives.gov/research.

If you have questions or concerns about this closure, please contact Research Customer Support Coordinator, Diane L. Dimkoff at 202-357-5225.
