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.

By Tony Buzzeo and Sacheko Yoshikawa Tess has the adventure of her life, from Time Out!
When a misbehaving girl finds herself in-charge of a T-rex in the library, she discovers what all of those sayings about 'watching out,' and 'being careful' are for.
The art is colorful and playful, and the book gives a lesson without making it seem like its giving one.
The story is about the rules of the library, and about all the wonderful things that can be found there. For pre-schoolers and kindergartners.
Weezer is a dog who is struck by lightening and is granted the power of great intelligence. He cures diseases and works toward world peace.
When he's struck by lightening again, he's changed back into a normal dog. However, his goodness has touched others, and they vow to continue on with Weezer's good works.
By Jim Arnosky.
The biggest threat to manatees is humans. In this story, a manatee is hurt by a boat. It's saved by humans as well, who rehabilitate the manatee and take care of her and her pup until she is ready to go back in the wild.
This story teaches care and respect for the natural world, and the consequences of human actions. It can be a good conversation starter to begin teaching kids about conservation.
Check out a list of our new books, by category, HERE.
