Becoming a Patron
Everyone is welcome to visit or contact the NASA Headquarters Library. You must be a NASA Headquarters employee, detailee, contractor, intern, or retiree in order to be a registered patron. Only registered patrons can borrow books or request materials through interlibrary loan. (Note: Libraries requesting interlibrary loans from us are welcome to call us.) In addition, access to some databases or online materials may be limited to NASA HQ personnel.
Headquarters personnel: In order to register, please complete a patron registration form. Forms are available at the Library front desk. If you are a detailee or an intern, your supervisor will need to complete the bottom half of the form. If you are a contractor, your Contracting Office Technical Representative will need to complete the bottom half of the form. To submit your registration form, please submit it in person to the library front desk. You will be asked to show your badge.
The Library's borrowing policies are on our Get Books page.
When you register, take the opportunity for a short tour of the Library. In ten minutes you'll learn a dozen resources and services that will help you do your job or better yourself.
Also, take the opportunity to subscribe to some of our Alert Services.
