Obsolete publications are not available through the Army Publishing Directorate or the Central Army Registry. They can be very difficult to track down, as there is no central repository for obsolete publications. See the rest of this Libguide for information on locating obsolete military publications.
Indexes for Obsolete Publications
Obsolete publications are indexed in a mix of print and electronic formats. The primary Army Index for publications is DA PAM 25-30. Older versions of DA PAM 25-30 are available at places like the ISCARL in a mix of print and microfiche formats.
