These stories bring to light a vast array of topics in new and readily accessible ways to encourage the study and discoveries that can happen in repositories such as Hoover.

The Hoover Institution Library & Archives


The mission of the Hoover Institution Library & Archives is to collect, preserve, and make available the most important materials about global political, social, and economic change in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. We serve as a platform for a vibrant community of scholars and a broad public interested in the meaning and role of history.

All activities at the Library & Archives are carried out with Herbert Hoover’s words in mind:;

The overall mission of this Institution is, from its records, to recall the voice of experience against the making of war, and by the study of these records and their publication, to recall man's endeavors to make and preserve peace, and to sustain for America the safeguards of the American way of life. This Institution is not, and must not be, a mere library. But with these purposes as its goal, the Institution itself must constantly and dynamically point the road to peace.
