The Collections Guide for researching textual materials in the Library's archive provides more detailed descriptions about each series.

We encourage researchers to contact the Library before making a research visit.  See the Plan Your Research Visit page for further information.

NOTE: Asterisks (***) indicate the records are available online through the Digital Library.

This collection consists of Presidential records from White House Staff Member Office Files (SMOF), 2001-2009, who served in the administration of President George W. Bush. Named after the individual staff members and/or offices, some series are fully available for research. Otherwise, individual folders have been opened during systematic processing. 

If an individual staff member worked in more than one office, he or she will have two finding aids - one for each office.
