You do not need to make a formal appointment to consult the digitized Hannah Arendt papers. All researchers, including those with no connection to the New School, may use the designated computer terminal in the List Center Library (6 East 16th Street, 8th Floor) during regular library hours.

There are card-activated turnstiles to enter the building. If you do not have an identification card that gives you access to the New School Libraries, please inform the security guards that you are there to use the Hannah Arendt Archives at List Center Library. The telephone number for the List Center Library's Circulation Desk is 212.229.5307 x3056 if there are any problems.

Please also note that the computer terminal is labeled as the designated Arendt archive terminal, and anyone using the terminal for non-Arendt research is required to vacate the seat immediately upon request.

Before planning your visit, be sure to consult the United States Library of Congress's Arendt portal at Most of Arendt's papers are available online to the public through this Web portal. You can also read about which papers are only available at The New School, the Hannah Arendt Center at the University of Oldenburg in Germany, and at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC.
