There are two libraries in the United States Air Force Academy Library (DFLIB) system that support faculty and staff, cadets and other patrons of the Academy—McDermott Library and the Base Library. See below for hours, locations and more.

McDERMOTT LIBRARY

The McDermott (Cadet) Library provides collegiate and professional-level reference, research and reading collections that support the academic and mission needs of the Academy. The Clark Special Collections, located on the 6th floor of the Library, houses a wealth of historical materials related to manned flight, air warfare, falconry, and the U.S. Air Force. McDermott Library’s online system provides access to the library catalog as well as to thousands of electronic resources.
