ABOUT OUR RESEARCH LIBRARY
The Military Women’s Memorial Research library includes more than 2,000 books, manuscripts, and periodicals about women’s service in and with the U.S. Armed Forces from the American Revolution to the present.
Library resources also cover women’s contributions through uniformed civilian organizations that offered wartime support of the military, such as the American Red Cross, USO, YMCA and Salvation Army.
Materials address women’s service in all significant American conflicts and wars, as well as peacetime service.
The library also includes resources on policy impacting women in combat, the treatment of gender identity and sexual orientation in the U.S. Armed Forces, as well as broader ranging topics that intersect with military women’s service and its history. Our library resources examine the social, economic, and cultural influences in American society that influenced and, in turn, were shaped by military women’s service.
