How do I obtain DNFSB Public Records?

There are four ways to obtain records and information:

  1. Visit our Public Reading Room (PRR)

    DNFSB maintains a PRR for the purpose of providing easy access to a substantial portion of the Board's records.

    • Location: 625 Indiana Avenue, NW, Washington, DC
    • Public Hours: Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
    • Assistance and Resources: Librarians are on hand to assist users in finding documents. A computer terminal is also available to search the Board's public electronic files. Copies can be made on the premises for a nominal charge.

      As a visitor to the PRR, you are entitled to:
    • Access posted Recommendations, notices of meetings, and personnel vacancy announcements.
    • Review any of the 100,000+ documents in the DNFSB Library. The Library staff will provide you with a subject printout covering your areas of interest from which you can make selections for full text.
    • Receive, free of charge, DNFSB's Annual Reports, Recommendations, and all other reports. If needed, all other material will be provided to you at minimal cost, using the DNFSB's current Fee Schedule. DNFSB's copying fees are posted here and in the PRR.
    • Expect to be received with courtesy and respect. Knowledgeable staff will be helpful, and we will work with you to help define your areas of interest. You will be helped immediately and will receive service that is responsive to your needs. We strive to provide "same day" research and duplication service for documents currently in our public files.
