ABOUT THE COLLECTIONS

Digitized collections of the MCoE HQ Donovan Research Library archives are a part of the Maneuver Center of Excellence Libraries Virtual Library program. The materials consist of historical collections of student papers, post newspapers, documents, yearbooks and other materials to be digitized. The collections represent the intellectual talent of research and education that Soldiers receive from the faculty, historians and staff of the US Army Infantry School and US Army Armor School and its divisions. The Library Division also partners with other organizations throughout the Installation and Worldwide. The digital collections also include donations from individuals and family members of those who served. Prior to these efforts the materials were only accessible through on-site visits. The library staff is working diligently to process, accession, catalog and store additional digital materials. The below collections are not complete. Additional items will be added to these collections in the near future.
