How Do I?

Research Support

The United States Military Academy Library exists to provide library and information services to support cadets, faculty, and staff. While the USMA Library does not provide general library services to the public, it may provide limited and defined reference and research support to individuals and organizations external to the U.S. Military Academy and the U.S. Army. That support is detailed in Library Policy Operating Memorandum No. 2-2: External Reference and Research Support.
