Presidential Records and Materials: Presidents from 1929 to Present Day

Presidential materials are made available to researchers in ways as varied as the presidential administrations they record. Find more information about where to access presidential materials through this LibGuide.

Presidential Libraries

The first presidential library was dedicated in 1941 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Following Roosevelt's example, Herbert Hoover and Harry Truman both opened presidential libraries to hold their donated papers. Now, the National Archives administers 13 presidential libraries, with a 14th in the planning stages.
