Libraries and Information Services Info Paper


Background

The Libraries and Information Services program provides the DoD community with current, retrospective and authoritative multi-media materials (for example, books, magazines, newspapers, microforms, tapes, electronic data bases, etc.) in all subject fields, as well as literary, musical, artistic, and basic reference for recreation and personal education. The Libraries and Information Services program does not generally include those libraries whose primary purpose is to provide technical reference and information related to training centers, military occupational specialty education or DoD reference facilities.

Key Points

  • Service delivery-The Libraries and Information Service program provides services through:
    • Library facilities at DoD installations
    • Afloat libraries
    • Military service portals and Military OneSource in the form of electronic books and other information products
    • Delivery of books and other products to deployed service members, remote and isolated sites and to military missions in foreign countries and other agencies where United States forces are assigned
  • Funding-The Libraries and Information Services program is classified as a mission sustaining program (Category A) and is supported almost entirely with appropriated funds.

Eligibility

Unlimited use of Morale, Welfare and Recreation programs and services is authorized to active duty, National Guard, Reserve Component members and their families, armed forces retirees and their families, former and surviving spouses and family members, and DoD civilians and their families when stationed outside the United States. Based on local demand and capacity, installation commanders may grant use of Morale, Welfare and Recreation programs and services to DoD civilians and their families inside the United States, DoD contract personnel, other federal employees, guests and members of the public.

Availability

These programs are available worldwide on military installations and online.

Serving your community can improve or maintain your physical and psychological health as well as provide opportunities for social interaction.


Girls working in garden Volunteering is a great way to spend some of your free time. When you volunteer, you give your time to a cause that needs your help. It's an opportunity to feel good about yourself, learn about an organization you may be interested in, meet new people and help a cause you believe in.
