The archive's closed, where do I find resources NOW?

The archive will continue to be closed until 2011. What does this mean for your research project now? 

The library will work with you to find alternate sources for completing research projects until the archive reopens. 

Here are a few sample resources available on the CARL home page: 

The online archive for the Combined Arms Research Library is an online collection of documents that exist inside the archive. While it is not entirely comprehensive, it does contain a wide variety of historical resources, papers and documents. There are currently 12 collections hosted. 

The Links tab contains frequently used links  to military and community resources. 

A list of library resources puts CARL resources close at hand, including periodicals, finding aids and other bibliographic resources. 

There is also a list of databases that CARL currently subscribes to. These databases contain  a wealth of free information. Be aware that these resources may require you to authenticate through Blackboard or with your library card before you can use them. 

Looking for something that isn't available on CARL's home page? Talk to a reference librarian. Librarians can work with you to find alternate resources that belong to other libraries, or in databases not directly available from CARL's home page.
