The U.S. Naval War College, located on Coasters Harbor Island, Naval Station Newport, Rhode Island, established in 1884, is the oldest institution of its kind in the world. More than 50,000 students have graduated since its first class of 9 students in 1885 and about 300 of today’s active-duty admirals and generals and senior executive service leaders are alumni.  The Library is reinventing itself as a Learning Commons, recapturing its role as the academic center of the U.S. Naval War College by utilizing a full range of research, academic resources and technology tools.  In support of this goal, the Library moved into an extensively renovated and expanded facility in August 2016.
