Interlibrary Loan

  • The library user will be expected to request only materials that are related to their work.
  • The library will support military personnel and DOD civilians pursuing course work.
  • All copyright restrictions apply.
  • Material not owned by the library can be requested on interlibrary loan. If you have an urgent need for articles, please let us know when you make the request. Turnaround is usually 24-48 hours. Book requests are dependent on the U.S. postal system or other carriers.

Recommending New Materials

Military personnel and DOD civilians are invited to suggest digital resources to include e-books which they feel are important to the mission. We are no longer purchasing books and journals in hard copy.
