The over 29,000 cubic feet (70 million pages) of textual materials housed at the George W. Bush Presidential Library include Presidential records from the Executive Office of the President (EOP).

Examples of EOP records are the White House Office of Records Management, the White House Staff Member Office Files, such as Condoleezza Rice and Karl Rove, the National Security Council files, and the records created by The Commission on the Intelligence Capabilities of the United States Regarding Weapons of Mass Destruction (The WMD Commission).

Presidential records at the Library are being processed under the terms of the Presidential Records Act and the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). View the Finding Aids for the records currently available for research at the Library.
