U.S. Military Academy Library
The Special Collections and Archives Division will occupy specially designed collection space on the fourth floor of Bartlett Hall North beginning in summer 2013. The new stack areas in Bartlett Hall North will allow all Special Collections and Archives materials to reside in the Central Area for the first time since 1989, benefitting all researchers. Patrons will not have access to the Bartlett Hall space, which will be used only as "on call" stacks, through the end of the Bartlett Hall renovation (tentatively January 2016). Reader space for Special Collections and Archives patrons will remain in Jefferson Hall 314 until the Bartlett Hall renovation is completed.
Many of the academic departments at USMA have a small reference library of books acquired by the department or by the Library for the department. These books are included in our library catalog and are denoted by “location” with a status of “see department”. Access is provided at the discretion of the individual libraries.
The following departments have libraries:
|CPME - Simon Center for Professional Military Ethic||Nininger Hall|
|CTC- Combating Terrorism Center||Lincoln Hall|
|Department of English and Philosophy||Lincoln Hall|
|Department of Geography and Environmental Engineering||Washington Hall|
|Department of History||Thayer Hall|
|Department of Law||BLDG 606|
|Department of Mathematics||Thayer Hall|
|Department of Physics||Bartlett Hall|
The USMA Library has maintained auxiliary collection space in an annex in building 2107, Pershing Center, since 1989. The annex space is located in the same building as the Visitors Center. With a comprehensive re-design of the Visitors Center planned in the near term, the library will temporarily vacate the annex in summer 2013. The library stack areas will be preserved in the renovation project and re-occupied when the project is complete.
