About the WHCA Pool Reports Collection


The White House Correspondents' Association Pool Reports Collection is an initiative achieved through a partnership of the University of Maryland's Philip Merrill College of Journalism, College of Information Studies, and University Libraries with the White House Correspondents' Association (WHCA) and the Freedom Forum Institute.

The White House Pool Reports Collection is a demonstration project that currently contains approximately 1800 email pool reports written between June 24, 2020 and September 30, 2020. These reports have been lightly redacted to remove the pool reporters' personal contact information including email addresses, phone numbers, and physical addresses. 

Digital aggregation of, indexing, and access to the WHCA Pool Reports collection from the University of Maryland Libraries are provided for educational, research, and journalistic purposes, under a license granted by the WHCA and by way of an assertion of fair use (17 U.S.C. 107). Written permission from the copyright owners and any other rights holders, as applicable, must be obtained for reuse of the WHCA Pool Reports content that extends beyond fair use or journalistic purposes.
