The Marshall Center Research Library supports the educational, informational, and research needs of the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies. We provide up-to-date print and digital resources via books, journals, and multimedia. Services include one-on-one consultations, research assistance, teaching about our resources, preparing research guides, and collaborating with faculty in the College of International and Security Studies.
The Library's collection covers a spectrum of issues on global security, terrorism and cyberterrorism, democracy and comparative studies, international relations and diplomacy, strategic communication and dialog, as well as peace and stabilization operations including crisis and conflict management. The library houses over 65,000 volumes of books and multimedia in English, German and Russian; maintains over 3,000 eBooks; and subscribes to more than 150 journals.
The Library’s security-related and academic research databases provide full-text access to over ten thousand journal articles and news stories, reports and analyses, policy documents, and much more. Library databases can be accessed from anywhere on-campus. Library resource access via the GlobalNET portal is available to alumni and staff from off-campus. Note that not all databases are accessible from off-campus based on vendor restrictions.
The Library is located in Building 101 on the ground floor, mezzanine and basement levels. The Library provides access to printers and a scanner/copier at no charge. Librarians can assist with questions on copyright and fair use.
