US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Online Catalog
The USACE Library Program provides access to its collections through USACE Library Catalog, a searchable database of library holdings, offering author, title, and keyword access to documents and makes it possible to retrieve information relevant to almost every request. Library customers, both internal and external, may search Corps Library collections by going to the following website - Internal USACE customers will be connected to subscribed online content.

USACE libraries answer reference questions via e-mail and telephone. Please contact us by e-mail at or by phone at 202.761.4853. You may also check the Directory of Libraries to find information for a specific USACE library.

Interlibrary Loan
Most USACE libraries lend their books and reports to other libraries through regional networks as well as through OCLC Resource Sharing. We are unable to lend materials directly to individuals outside of the Corps of Engineers, so requests to borrow must come from another library. Please call or email if you have questions or concerns: or 202.761.4853.

Most USACE libraries are open to the public. Hours of operation vary from one library to another. If you are interested in visiting a USACE library, please call ahead to make an appointment so a library staff member will be there to speak with you.
