As part of a series of orientations to libraries and information centers, FLICC is offering an opportunity for federal librarians to become acquainted with the programs and services of the Pentagon Library.

The Pentagon Library supports the mission of Washington Headquarters Services, an essential services provider to Department of Defense personnel. It fulfills the research, information and knowledge requirements of Department of Defense personnel working at the Pentagon and throughout the National Capital Region, and as resources permit, serves as an authoritative referral for military libraries world wide.

The program will include:
~ Welcome and staff introductions
~ Briefing and Q & A Session
~ Walking tour of the library

Entering the Pentagon from the Metro
After exiting the fare gates on the upper level, proceed left, up the escalators. Turn around and find the entrance behind you.

Depending on your status, enter the “Badge” or “No Badge” Line. Show your ID; you will be allowed into the Pentagon Lobby area where the Visitors Badge Desk is located. (Those who have the Government Common Access Card (CAC) will still need to get a Pentagon Visitors Badge (a “No Escort Required” Badge), and may proceed directly to the library, or feel free to wait for an escort.) If you do not have a CAC card, you will need to bring two forms of picture identification (i.e., driver’s license, passport). A member of the library staff will meet visitors and assist those needing a visitor badge.

The library is located in the Pentagon Library and Conference Center (PLC2) across the Corridor 8 bridge. Proceed through the E Ring exit on Corridor 8 First Floor and cross the bridge to the PLC2. The library entrance will be on the right as your enter the Grand Hallway. The walk from the Pentagon Visitor’s Badge Desk is 10-15 minutes.
