About Us




The MCoE HQ Donovan Research Library, Fort Benning, GA, and the US Armor Research Library, Fort Knox, KY, with a combined 150+ years of rich, Armor, Calvary and Infantry history, became the Maneuver Center of Excellence Library Division on 1 October 2009 as part of the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure Commission's decision to move the Armor School to Fort Benning.


The Library Division's mission is to support the training of Soldiers and to provide academic reference, doctrinal research, and bibliographic services in support of the students, faculty, and staff of the Maneuver Center of Excellence. The Library Division provides reach-back capability from the forces worldwide to the MCoE.


The collection consists of several thousand books, historical documents, field manuals, military publications, pamphlets, periodicals, student papers, post newspapers and unit histories. The staff's efforts of acquiring, organizing, maintaining, and preserving these collections digitally will allow them to provide access to these materials via in-house and virtually.


The MCoE HQ Donovan Research Library is located in Building 70 on Main Post, adjacent to the MCoE HDQ McGinnis-Wickam Hall. The MCoE Libraries Virtual Library Branch is open 24/7 and can be accessed at
