Please contact the Reference Desk first, and you will be notified if a FOIA request is necessary. For more information about the FOIA process, please see the JPL FOIA web page, contact the LIbrary Reference Desk at 818-354-4200 or email . After consulting a member of the reference staff, you may be asked to fill out and sign the Application for Access to Archival Material  .  Consult the Archives Guide for more information about doing research in the JPL Archives.
