For researching in the NASA Johnson Space Center History Collection, there is information you as a researcher need to know and follow before attempting to come research in the collection at the University of Houston-Clear Lake Archives and Special Collections. Information on researching at UHCL Archives is described in the "Research at UHCL Archives and Special Collections" page of the UHCL Archives and Special Collections LibGuides introduction page. We are open to appointments right now due to a limited staff, Monday-Friday, 9 A.M. to 5 P.M.
For researchers using the Johnson Space Center History Collection, we require researchers locate and provide us with series titles, section numbers, and box/folder numbers ahead of time. There are over 3,000 linear feet of records, and some of these materials have been digitized by NASA and are no longer physically at the UHCL Archives and Special Collections. We need specifics ahead of your research, as we may be able to locate already digitized records, and send them to you through secure electronic transfer.
There are two different https://historycollection.jsc.nasa.gov/JSCHistoryPortal/history/history_collection.htm. , the JSC History Search Index and JSC Archive Search Index, that have different levels of detail—one goes to the item level and one to the folder level. The instructions for accessing the two different for the search are here:
Human Space Flight Collection
We also have the Human Space Flight Collection, which are papers we collect from the public related to former NASA Johnson Space Center personnel. These collections are not all arranged and described, and those that are are not described in as great of detail as the JSC History Collection. Currently, completed collection finding aids for Human Space Flight Collection individual collections are available online in the UHCL Neumann Library's Institutional Repository (IR) as searchable PDF documents.
UHCL Archives has compiled an alphabetical list of all publicly-available HSF collections, with collection descriptions, background information on collection creators, and links to the online finding aids for each of the collections where available. These collections are listed alphabetically under the "Human Space Flight Collection" LibGuides page.
