The NASA HQ Information Center serves NASA Headquarters and NASA employees as well as government contractors and officials, educators, and members of the national and international public. Inquiries are received by electronic mail, postal mail, phone and in person.

The Information Center staff provides directional and core information concerning the functions, activities and personnel of the Headquarters Facility to approximately 5,000 persons who call, visit, or write NASA Headquarters each month. The staff also responds to requests for publications and reports produced by NASA. For information pertaining to other NASA Centers, people are directed to the appropriate NASA Information Center.
The Information Center's hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday (excluding government holidays). As part of ongoing building renovations, the NASA Headquarters Information Center will be relocating over the summer to temporary offices. During the renovations, the Information Center and the NASA Headquarters Library will be closed to outside visitors beginning August 22, 2013. We continue to provide service via email at, or by phone at (202) 358-0000.

We will continue to be the publicís source for publications from the NASA History Program Office, the Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate, and the Science Mission Directorate from our temporary offices.

NASA Headquarters staff and HQ contractors may visit the Information Center in its temporary quarters in 2K70, adjacent to the West bank of elevators.

Once the renovations are completed, the Information Center and Library will reopen at our new location in the East Lobby of the Headquarters building. Please watch this page for information on our reopening.


  The Information Center is located in the NASA HQ Library. You are welcome to visit us there. No appointment is necessary. Visitors should enter NASA Headquarters through the West Lobby and stop at the guards' desk. They should indicate they wish to visit the library and present current valid government photo identification. Foreign nationals are signed in by library staff and issued badges at the guard's desk.
