For Patron awareness, below are updated processes and systems we have put in place aimed at facilitating access and research opportunities both on-site and virtually:
- On-site research is now by appointment only: https://ahec.armywarcollege.edu/publicresearch/default.cfm. Researchers are required to follow all current health guidelines, please make every effort to coordinate ahead of time in order to maximize allotted time. This will assist the USAHEC staff to plan accordingly and provide the appropriate level of on-site research.
- For any issues or questions regarding the online catalog and availability of collections, please use http://usawc.libanswers.com for assistance.
