The Kennedy Library research rooms are open to the general public. All researchers are advised to make appointments prior to visiting the Main Research Room. Researchers wishing to use our audiovisual collections (photos, sound recordings, moving images) are required to schedule appointments in advance. Sound recording research requires at least two weeks advance notice so that listening copies can be prepared.
Research Hours: Monday through Friday, 8:30 to 4:30. Closed on weekends and federal holidays.
