About meLibrarian and archivist based in Southern California who manages the collection and volunteers at the American Military Museum Library in South El Monte, CA.

About my libraryThe American Society of Military History's American Military Museum is dedicated to preserving the rich history provided by the vehicles that the military has used. The museum is located in the Whittier Narrows Recreation Area in South El Monte, CA. The Museum Library is a “department” within the American Society of Military History Museum. The collection maintains arguably one of the largest military research collections under civilian control and is accessible only by appointment. The museum and library staff is 100% funded out of contributions and volunteer labor and has been a Section 501(c)(3) California Non-Profit Educational Corporation continuously since 1965.

Museum Library Mission Statement
The American Society of Military History Museum Library strives to promote learning, discovery, and community involvement in the development, preservation, restoration, and maintenance of America’s military heritage. The collection is estimated at over 10,000 books, 7000 technical and field manuals, and 5700 periodicals (MuseumsUSA, n.d.), ranges from the civil war to the present day. The collection consists of not only Department of Defense materials, but also defense contractor and veteran collections of materials, photographs, blueprints, accounts, video tapes, audio recordings, DVDs, and facility plans.

We serve people of all ages, backgrounds, and needs, as well as those who require the unique equipment and knowledge available at an operating museum library. We instill the public with a love of learning about America’s military heritage while preserving the physical story of America’s military history.

To this end, the library provides (a) research assistance, (b) collection, restoration, and preservation of military materials, (c) hands on job training and experience (d) educational outreach to public and private institutions and (e) telling the story of the great sacrifice required for a successful national defense. We look forward to hearing from you!
