Borrowing Library Materials

Library materials may be checked out at the Circulation Desk on the first floor of the Nimitz Library.

Midshipmen
Midshipmen will be asked to provide their alpha code when checking out library materials.
Faculty and Staff
Since not all Circulation Department staff will recognize faculty and staff by sight, those not in uniform may be asked to show their USNA or military ID.
USNA Family Members
Immediate family members of civilian and military personnel assigned to the Annapolis Area command will be issued a library card when they first check out material. Either this library card or appropriate alternate ID must be shown when checking out library materials.
