Research Library and Archives
At the center of research across the Smithsonian are the specialized branches of the Smithsonian Libraries.
The National Museum of African American History and Culture Research Library and Archives, one of 21 locations of the Smithsonian Libraries, is devoted to providing access to resources that support the scholarship of researchers from around the world who study African American history, culture, and the African diaspora.
The Library is accessible by appointment to visiting scholars, independent researchers, and others pursuing knowledge.
