Information about Moving the Presidential Records to California and Reference Closures at College Park
In 2010 the Nixon Library will move presidential documents and audio-visual materials from its stack areas in the National Archives facility in College Park, Maryland to the Library campus in Yorba Linda, California.
On-site reference services on the Nixon Presidential textual collection in College Park, Maryland, will be suspended on February 19, 2010 to prepare the boxes for delivery to California. Email, telephone and mail assistance for researchers interested in these records will continue on a limited basis during the transition of the materials.
On-site reference on Nixon presidential documents will begin in Yorba Linda, California, in late May or early June 2010. The precise date of opening, which will depend on the arrival dates of the textual shipments, will be publicized as soon as possible in early 2010.
On-site reference services on the Nixon presidential audio-visual collection in College Park will be suspended in August 2010 to prepare the materials for shipment later in the year. The precise date of reopening in Yorba Linda will be publicized as soon as possible in 2010.
All reference services on the textual and audio-visual collections currently in Yorba Linda will be unaffected by the move and will continue throughout this period.
Until the completion of the tape review program, which encompasses review of the tapes from January-July 1973 and additional releases from the first four chronological segments, primary reference service on the White House tapes will remain with the Nixon Library unit in College Park. As of May 2010, the Library campus in Yorba Linda will have copies of all publicly-released tapes. Eventually all opened tapes will be available online at www.nixonlibrary.gov. Digital copies will always be available for research in College Park.
This timetable assumes completion of the archival addition on the Library's campus in Yorba Linda in late 2009. Construction and move timetable updates will be available at www.nixonlibrary.gov. Please send any questions about the move or reference closures to firstname.lastname@example.org.
