The collections of the John D. Rockefeller Jr. Library focus on the history and culture of colonial British America, the American Revolution, and the early United States. Unique to the library is the body of research on the buildings, people, trades, and material culture of 18th-century Williamsburg.

The Library is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. The general public is welcome to visit the library and use our research resources. However, outside researchers should be aware that in-depth reference services may be limited. Library materials circulate to Colonial Williamsburg Foundation staff and volunteers and to faculty, staff, and students of the College of William and Mary.
