What Should I Expect to Happen When I Arrive at the Federal Reading Room?

You should familiarize yourself with the following procedures:

Do I need to make an appointment to visit a Federal Reading Room?

There are two types of Federal Reading Rooms:

1.) A "By-Appointment" Reading Room requires you to set up an appointment and request OCA Information from specific facilities several days in advance, so that paper copies can be printed and delivered from elsewhere.

2.) A "Walk-In" Reading Room generally provides access during its office hours. However, even for a walk-in Reading Room, it is best to call ahead. This lets you confirm its availability and learn of any site-specific requirements, and it gives the Reading Room a chance to prepare for your visit.

Do all Federal Reading Rooms provide the same information?

All Federal Reading Rooms can provide you the same information.

Who supports the Federal Reading Rooms?

Some reading rooms are supported by EPA; the others are the responsibility of the Department of Justice.
