Books & Archival Collections in Special Collections

This bibliography lists the Washingtoniana Collection’s various holdings relating to the District’s neighborhoods. During the three year modernization of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, the majority of the materials listed here will be available by appointment at the Washingtoniana interim location in Fall 2017. Archival materials may be paged to the Library of Congress for viewing. Contact us or see the interim service plan for appointments and more details. 

During the MLK Library closure, please consult the online catalog for specific books on this list. Books duplicated by the Historical Society will not appear in the DCPL catalog, but will appear in the Historical Society's catalog. Books with call numbers beginning with “Cutter Collection” or ending with “STAX” may not be available during the MLK Library closure. Please ask a librarian for more details.

In addition to the books and archival records listed here, the Washingtoniana Collection has collections of photographs, newspapers, clipping files and maps. Ask a librarian for additional details.
