The Medal of Honor Memorial Library, also known as the Fort Meade Post Library, has been serving the recreational and research needs of the community since 1952.
Library services include public access computers with Internet, Common Access Card (CAC) readers, and Wi-Fi. Faxing and scanning are also available.
The Library also carries current fiction and non-fiction books, magazines which circulate (except for the current issue); newspapers; books on CD; and documentary-type DVDs.
Because of its affiliation with the Online Computer Library Center, Inc (OCLC), the Library has access to almost any book in print. If a book is desired which the Library does not own, it can be obtained by interlibrary loan (ILL) through OCLC by requesting it at the Library’s circulation desk.
There are many online databases available through the Library which are centrally purchased by the Army.
These databases can be accessed two ways:
(1) Registering for an account directly with the Library, then accessing the Library’s online card catalog at http://mylibraryus.armybiznet.com/search~S38, and obtaining a Personal Identification Number (PIN). Tip: the “Web login” used to create the PIN must be the identical email address submitted when the customer registered for an account with the Library.
(2) Through your Army Knowledge Online (AKO) account.
To access the databases through your AKO account, click on “My Library” under “Self Service.”
The Army has a “popular” ebook collection known as the “Army Digital Media Library,” as well as other digital collections which are considered academic in nature. These can be accessed either through your library account or through AKO. After clicking on “My Library,” click “Read or Listen to a Book.” Next click on the “Army Digital Media Library” hyperlink at the bottom of the the section containing the icon. This will then provide access to ebooks, audiobooks, music, videos, and “Featured Collections” which includes the U.S. Army Chief of Staff books in digital format.
