ZE (Places) Files in the Navy Department Library
This series of files is comprised of three linear feet of material, and furnishes data on naval facilities and other geographic locations. Among the material in individual files are: (1) official Office of Naval Records and Library, and Naval History Division correspondence and reports; (2) newspaper and magazine articles; (3) cross-reference sheets to records in Record Groups 45 and 80 at the National Archives. The arrangement is alphabetical according to geographic location.
Z File materials are unavailable for loan and must be consulted in the library. Photocopying of manuscripts, as well as fragile items, is generally prohibited, though the use of digital cameras by researchers to reproduce non-copy righted materials is permitted. Permission to photocopy a few pages may be granted by the reference staff, contingent upon the physical state of items. All photocopying of materials shall be done by the reference staff, or under their close supervision. The use of personal scanners by non-library staff personnel must be approved by the reference staff on a document-by-document basis (Reference: Naval History and Heritage Command Instruction [NAVHISTCENTINST]5070.1C.).
