DoD MWR Library Resources through Military OneSource

 DOD MWR LIBRARY RESOURCES

DoD provides a number of library databases, ebook collections and other library resources across the services, through the Military OneSource portal. A username/password account is created for authentication, making it easy to access when you aren't using a CAC-connected device. New users can find the registration link on the main login screen.

Login to Military OneSource

Once  you are logged in, select the MWR Library Resources link from the left side menu. Resources are comparable to those offered through Navy General Library Program but are available to all service members and their families.

Pentagon Digital Library

PENTAGON LIBRARY

From the library FAQs: Pentagon Library services are available to DoD personnel who are stationed at the Pentagon, Mark Center, and National Capital Region (and only if not serviced by another government library in the NCR). Instructions for obtaining a card and online access are available on the library website.
