U.S. Military Academy Library: Digital Collections

For anyone intrigued by the history of the United States Military - and especially the training of officers at military academies like West Point - the U.S. Military Academy (USMA) Library's Digital Collections will arrive as a welcome find. For example, the 1897 Annual Report of the Superintendent details the faculty and staff on hand at West Point as of September 1st: "7 professors, 1 associate professor, 55 commissioned officers, 1 chaplain, 1 sword master, and 1 teacher of music." In the same document, readers may peruse details about the academy's water supply, buildings and grounds, and the building of a battle monument, among other details. There are numerous items of interest in the collection in addition to annual reports describing the activities of West Point through the 1980s; there are also extensive maps, photographs, journals, and class albums featured in the collections. Last but not least, readers should not miss the opportunity to scroll through a handful of issues of the Assembly Magazine, West Point's former alumni magazine. This will be added to Military Resources Subject Tracerâ„¢. [From The Scout Report, Copyright Internet Scout 1994-2015. https://www.scout.wisc.edu]
