CARL: Visitors



Visitors are Welcome! 

The Library supports study and teaching at the Army University Campus. Central to our mission are our unique collections, the expertise we provide, and the excellent services we offer.


Access and Policies

Access and services available depend on your research needs, or your affiliation with another institution.  If you are a first-time visitor, we encourage you to contact a librarian before your visit; staff will help you determine what collections and services are available to you and how to establish access.

Go to the Archives and Special Collections page for its access policies.

The Library Catalog, the Digital Library and Research Guides are available to help you search our collections.

When in the library, you will be able to use most of electronic resources to which we subscribe.  Access to these resources from off-campus is available only to current library account holders and those that have access to the school's blackboard system.

Photocopying, printing, and scanning are available to visitors.
