Presidential libraries and museums are national monuments dedicated to the memories of men who served as America's commander-in-chief. There are twenty-five (soon to be twenty-six) presidential libraries and museums. Following an introductory overview of presidential libraries and museums and their history, comprehensive entries of each site are arranged from George Washington to George W. Bush, with information included about the current plans for Barack Obama's library. Each entry contains information on: *Location and history *Endowments *Opening hours, number of visitors, and other facts *Collections and permanent exhibits This first reference guide to all twenty-five libraries and museums is a ready reference providing readers with quick and reliable information.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Christian A. Nappo follows up his popular reference The Librarians of Congress with an equally useful handbook describing the histories and collections of the US presidential libraries. Nappo successfully captures the unique background of the man whose memory is preserved by each library and offers insights into how that personal history continues to guide the library's unique mission. Younger readers especially will find these brief entries to be accessible, instructive, and above all helpful in understanding the broader mission of all presidential libraries. -- James M. Donovan, director and James and Mary Lassiter Associate Professor of Law, University of Kentucky College of Law Library
A great resource on presidential libraries and museums. I highly recommend this work for scholars and students. -- Aisha M. Johnson-Jones, supervisory archivist, Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum
