SUBJ: Available Resources and Services During COVID Remote Operations


Ladies and Gentlemen,

The Marine Corps Research Library will conduct remote operations beginning 19 March 2020 until at least 11 May 2020. The decision to close was approved by the Commanding General, Marine Corps University, and reflects concern for the health and well-being of our patrons and employees, in light of USMC guidance on the COVID-19 outbreak. 

This website outlines resources and services available to MCU students, faculty, and staff at this time. Real-time updates will be posted on this website and our social media outlets.


  • The academic year continues and the Library will continue to provide services to MCU students, faculty, and staff during the COVID shutdown. We understand you have papers to write and research to do. We are here for you - just conducting remote ops!
  • Reference and Virtual branch staff are available to support from 0800-1600, seven days/week.

We will make adjustments as we determine how to provide the best possible access to resources and services. Thank you in advance for your patience! 

Please take time to review the Resources and Services sections below, especially our contact information. And remember:

  • If you need something... please ask! 
  • If you have a question... please ask!
  • If you have a suggestion... please share!
