Contact Information

The Division's collections are archival in nature and are made available chiefly for original research. The staff cannot conduct lengthy searches, make editorial selection of images, produce long lists of images, undertake extensive research projects, or conduct appraisals. Requests for specific images credited to the Library of Congress can be handled when limited to fifteen or fewer items in the calendar year. Researchers requiring additional services may wish to hire a freelance researcher in the Washington, D.C., area to work on their behalf.
